Great work! Another useful macro - and some cool demos too. Robot
Ran through all the demos and didn't pick up any issues with my current
package of IO fixes / changes. I do have some comments on the Filed()
"...missing out a field or an empty field..."
"...a missing field or an empty field..."
The flowers.pov file already has the tabulated.inc guard set to 1
contrary to the scene's comments.
The flowers_read.pov animation doesn't look to me to be picking up all
the yellow flowers? Maybe one or two per asteroid? I didn't investigate
though, perhaps it's working as expected?
With the flowers.ini AA, at least on linux with v3.8 and povr, the
method 3 AA doesn't look very good. Perhaps something like:
sampling_method = 2
antialias_threshold = 0.005
antialias_depth = 3
jitter = on
The toa example needs too the jr's ruled.inc - Ruled() and this is not
mentioned in the documentation and there is no pointer as to where to
The toa example needs the arial.ttf font which is not - by default -
available for most non windows users.
With the toa example, where the "toa_state.txt" or "toa_run.log" already
exist we get an error message via toal__chkFilesExist(), but the error
message only says "existing file(s)" were found.
