Thanks, James - I have seen that type of thing in the various POV-Ray include
files, and probably in some source and arduino code.  I thought that's what was
getting done, but at present it seems that TdG was trying to invoke some kind of
POV "woo".

Yeah - I was stunned that there was some such thing that I had never heard of or
seen.  On the other hand, it's an interesting concept - maybe a clever macro
could "search" for all variants of a particular filename...

So do I.  The world just keeps getting cloudier, murkier, more opaque, and more
obscure as time goes on it seems...

I'm going to sacrifice another lime and offer up a supplication that Thomas gets
the rest, therapy, - and medication - that he so desperately needs to find
clarity of mind and inner peace.  We love you, Thomas.   Help is always just a
forum-post away.   :)
