The file I was referencing was included with the 3.0x version of Pov-Ray.
Halos have been discontinues in the 3.1 version and as a consequence
the example was removed. There is an example of producing flames by
Dan Connelly posted to the povray.binaries.images group. It dates back
to some time around 9/25/98. This example uses the new media feature
in v3.1 and is worth looking at. While not useful as a candle flame perhaps
it can get you going in the right direction.
