  Moray uses materials not textures?

So um.......I'm new to Pov-Ray and Moray and I started horsing around with Moray
just now and created a mesh object and attempted to assign a material to it like
I thought I was supposed to and when Pov-Ray executed it reported that it found
a material where a texture was supposed to be found.  So I unassigned the
material in Moray so that the mesh object didn't have a material or a texture
either one and it renders but the object is rendered as a solid red block and
details can't be descerned on the object nor is it photorealistic.  So I guess
my question is can mesh objects have materials assigned to them and I'm just
doing something wrong or are the texture objects in the Material editor really
materials and not textures.  Something went wrong somewhere and I'm not sure
what to do next.  I can continue creating objects but none of them will have a
material assigned to them if they are mesh objects.  By the way Pov-Ray rocks
and Moray is a dream come true.
