Your files lack the ".pov" extension and you have "Allow rendering of ".pov"
files only" in the Files Pane of the Preferences enabled.  You should add a
proper ".pov" extension to your files just like all the sample scenes have.

Thank you Thorsten

Your advice was fine. Everything works.

More, there is almost no delay between my question and your answer...
so I keep working all evening !

I wish good things to you.

I'm having trouble making it past the compile stage because it complains
about my include files.  I have no idea how to get the filename and the
Library Path commands.  I'd like it if you could provide examples of code
and preference-changing.  Thanks.

Also, I have a screenshot of my desktop at:
http://celbalrai.dynip.com/~alice/desktop.jpg

When I switched from Linux to Mac I've been getting nothing but problems.  I
have a 266MB processor beige G3 running on OS 9.2.2.  I doubt this
information would help, but I'm including it anyways.

In the screenshot there already is a link to the solution!  It tells
precisely where to go: "See the chapter 'Setting POV-Ray Options' for more
information on library paths."  And if you follow the link you will read:

>>>
2.2.8 Setting POV-Ray Options

POV-Ray was originally created as a command-line program for operating
systems without graphical interfaces, dialog boxes and pull-down menus. Most
versions of POV-Ray still use command-line switches to tell it what to do.
This documentation assumes you are using the command-line version. If you
are using Macintosh, MS-Windows or other GUI versions, there will be dialog
boxes or menus which do the same thing. There is system-specific
documentation for each system describing the specific commands.
<<<

Clearly this tells you the manual is written for the command-line version,
but that is not what you are having, right?  So you need to check the
platform specific section to find out how to set the library include path.
Just go to section "1.5.1.5 Scenes Pane" and set the path for the standard
include folder.

Note that scene specific include paths can be set in the Render Settings
dialog. Section 1.5.1.5.1 outlines that you should not add scene specific
include paths to the global settings (this could possibly cause problems if
scenes use non-standard include files with the same name).

Of course there is also a command-line box for you to enter command line
options directly.  That is also explained in full detail in the platform
specific manual.

    Thorsten
