Downloaded and compiled the Linux version of v3.8 master.

The Command Line parameter Input_File_Name (+Ifile) is no longer working as per
V3.7, and has been removed from the 3.8 documentation. Was " Include File
Name" in V3.7. (Yet it is still mentioned elsewhere).
If I specify +Iscene.ini it is treated as if it is a .pov file and fails to

Why has it been removed?

How do you do animations from the Command Line (i.e. Linux) if you can't control
frames, clock, etc via the .ini file?
