I am currently testing a macro by jr.: tabulated.inc. In one of his demo
scenes he uses the following line:
#declare seed_ = val(datetime(now,"%s"));
Using Windows10, and POV-Ray v3.8.0-beta 1, I get the following error:
Parse Error: Invalid formatting code in format string, or resulting
string too long.
I contacted jr. about this and he answered the following:
"POV-Ray's documentation says the "..optional STRING parameter should
conform to the same formatting as that of the strftime() C function."
and (lowercase) "%s" is documented as described and used. I assume
that the Windows 'strftime()' does not provide that option? else it
would be a POV-Ray on Windows bug, I guess."
I mention this error also on behalf of jr. I am not sure about which
system jr. uses, obviously not Windows, but he will jump in if you need
