Hello there!

I've been using MegaPOV on a Macintosh, and would like to be able to use both
cores on an SMP machine, as well as clusters.

I've used both MPI and XLMRPC (for digital audio processing), but the various
extensions to POV-Ray and MegaPOV don't appear to support MacOSX SMP machines
or clusters thereof. Is there some patch or new version I'm missing?

I know about the new SMP POV-Ray and Megapov-XRS, but can't find Mac ports.

.....any reply appreciated...

If you're any good at scripting, you can achieve the same effect that smpov
does. I'd help but I'm only mediocre at scripting and I don't have a multi-core
processor.
