an example (only 5 yrs ago and cannot recall details :-()

I use the attached with a BASH one-liner:

#!/bin/sh
/home/jr/src/tcltk/spiro-1.tk | gnuplot -persist

'execPlot' prepares the input to gnuplot.  different for different s/wares, but
usually boils down to "feeding" program's stdin.

Plus, turned up nothing more that looks wrong to me in v3.8 with 
dictionaries once the fix in place.

Thanks jr for the testing assist!

I played quite a lot with the pure foreach array functionality too and I 
turned up not a single issue (not of my own doing :-)). Your include is 
looking good to me. Enough that I'll spend my few remaining play time 
minutes this day thinking about better alternatives to our 
Parse_String() macro hack.

the pleasure's all mine, as they say.  ;-)

</dance-around-kitchen>  (not quite .. crackers, there's good music on the radio
too)  thanks, gives me "wind in the sails" to finish off documentation + stuff.

I also should say that it was made easier because of the "standing on the
shoulders of (POV-Ray community) titans" thing.

forgot to ask (for confirmation) - same fix for 'povr' I assume?


note to LeForgeron - can/should I use WFP's fix for the 'bitter orange'?


regards, jr.

Yes.

To be clear; When I make public a v3.8 fix, I 'fully expect' it to apply 
to the v3.8 master branch as is, but I've not verified it with my own 
testing.

It's the - in hand - povr branch code I test. A branch which has other 
fixes for bugs with which I do not wish to again be tangled.
