Hi. I have a dozen of these files, which are the output of the CASINO program
for the simulation of electron scattering in a solid of SiO2.  These can be very
beautiful (see images at https://www.google.com/search?q=casino+electron ), but
the paths are often rendered in ugly, one-pixel-wide trails.

I want to render in povray, turning each Trajectory into a spline or a series of
cylinders. Once I get a series of arrays defined properly in povray SDL, I'm
good to go.  I believe I have the skills to use Notepad++ to make most of the
modifications, then do some typing by hand per trajectory. But the problem is
there are 200 trajectories, each with a different number of segments, and I have
a dozen files.  Also, this low energy simulation only has about 20 points. Some
of the high energy ones have over 300!

Any tips? (Feel free to use this file any way you see fit).
