After a quick research for the 'ca' term, I see that it means 'approximately'
(circa) and that's true, the magazine and the CD-Rom in question was sold in
december 1995 it was named "Sciences et Vie Micro - Villagina 3". The 24 bits
Targa files rendered with POVRay definitely caught my fancy by comparison with
the 256 colors of the Windows 3.1 standard desktop.
I notice your message about 3.8.0 POVRay setup under Linux. Thank you ;-D
