PROBLEM IDENTIFIED/FIXED

The OLD .ini files contain the option 'Radiosity=On' and the new files DONT.
The .ini file is correctly read, but when hitting this option, the failure is:
'Failed to parse command-line option'.
Simply commenting out this option in the OLD .ini files means the command line
"povray inifilename" works exactly as expected.
This option was changed in Version 3.7 AFAIK - and the OLD files specifically
state Version 3.1 (Doh!).
So, maybe a case of backwards incompatibility?  This is downgraded to a moan:
Could the 'Failed to parse ...' message be a bit more helpful?

Got loads of ideas for further use of this library, and will post as and when..

OK. : )

I know why. A whole world of ex-wifes ...
I cant get the ringing out of my head.
It's Tommy Lee, Professor of Darkness, telling off the Heretic Preacher,
"The shadow of the ax hangs over every joy, every ..."
 sooner or later, futility.
....
"And if that pain were actually collective instead of simply reiterative then
the sheer weight of it would drag the world from the walls of the universe and
send it crashing and burning through whatever night it might yet be capable of
engendering until it was not even ash."

It's destroying mine, and they point fingers and say, "See what you've created."
I say, you see the impact of others yet?

Is Tommy still here?
Always ends the same? that has to be arrogance.
