I'm thrilled :-D let me explain : Following initial attempt around these
newsgroups by Koppi and SDRausty
http://news.povray.org/povray.unix/thread/%3Cweb.5703a674be33e802db8f4ad50%40news.povray.org%3E/?mtop=427658
I gave a successful try at building POV v3.8 and HG POV on Android Phones, using
Termux. (Recipe here: http://wiki.povray.org/content/HowTo:Install_POV#Termux )
Then Found out the most practical solutions to edit the pov files there out of
the box was VIM, also since Vim touch is available from Fdroid, it makes the
same editor also available outside of Termux. PLUS it did feature POV syntax
highlighting, so even tighter integration is awesome news !
