tells me it works on MS Windows, but not (for me) on Linux (like 'rtr' </sigh>).

after exiting the program and changing into the 'example1' directory, POV-Ray
does not like the spaces in the file name, so when:

  $ povparse +i"show tree function.pov"

Problem with option setting
/usr/local/bin/povray-3.8.0-beta.2 +w32 +h32 -d -f -p -gr -gs +ishow tree
Failed to parse command-line option

another error occurs because the 'pretrace_*' settings depend on image size, eg
with the (small) WxH settings above.

however, file renamed and using a large enough WxH, I get another error.  not
even sure what the problem is supposed to be (since the code looks kosher (to
the untutored eye)):

File 'functions.inc' line 9: Parse Warning: Scene language version changed after
 a 'default' statement. The changes in defaults normally associated with the
 language version change are not applied.
File 'example1_angular_shape_factor.inc' line 10: Possible Parse Error:
 Suspicious identifier found in function! If you want to call a function make
 sure the function you call has been declared. If you call an internal function,
 make sure you have included 'functions.inc'.
File 'example1_angular_shape_factor.inc' line 10: Parse Error: Expected
 'operator', ( found instead
Fatal error in parser: Cannot parse input.
Render failed
