It's taken a while, but I've removed the limitations reported earlier this 
year with the Scroll object. V2.0 at 
http://lib.povray.org/collection/scroll/chrisb%202.0/scroll.html is now a 
macro with settings that enable you to control almost everything (width. 
length radius etc.).

The uv-mapping and normal issues are sorted, so you can add text or any 
other pattern (including a tiled image map) and have it follow the scroll 
contours. You can specify a seperate interior_texture to get a different 
texture on the back. There's are text layout options for justification of 
blocks of text, including full justification.

Examples are now included demonstrating how to use it for kitchen rolls, 
rolls of wallpaper and tin-foil as well as paper scrolls with writing in 
both portrait and landscape mode. There's even an animation example.

Regards,
Chris B
