Thanks. Now *something* is happening instead of that error message, 
which isn't necessarily a good thing.
Instead, the Mac "beachball" spins indefinitely. By pressing ALT-COMMAND 
I can see that POVray is "not responding", so I had to do a "force quit".

This seems to happen every time I run it, and the file I've given to it 
is a very small one as well (I just placed one small IC on a board, so I 
can't possibly think POVray would see it as a major task; the whole POV 
file is 399 lines long).

Then I tried it in another application which I found called MegaPOV it 
seemed to work better, but even after setting the path to those files 
(in the "Files & paths" section of preferences) I got an error message:

Parse Error: Illegal character in input file, value is 02.

   Postpr. Time:  0 hours  0 minutes  0 seconds (0 seconds)
   Total Time:    0 hours  0 minutes  0 seconds (0 seconds)

What does that mean, and what can I do in order to fix it?
