Try this and tell me what happens:

after proper installation of POV-Ray 3.7, open the scene help file, and search
for "crand" in its index. Then, when it was found, double-click it in order to
open the related documentation page.

Please tell me what result you get. Thanks.

Step 2: test for other, image-related keywords, too. I believe, the entire
image_map section is missing. Am I right?

Sheesh ... these are BOTH known problems (see p.d.inbuilt) that have 
been reported and are being worked on as time permits. Try going to 
Contents tab and you will find that these passages are NOT missing. For 
crying out loud do your homework before wasting other peoples time!

I think a more diplomatic answer could have been in place. It's not like
we can afford losing fans over disrespectful behavior.
