And of course, since POV-Ray can't determine the cast/type of the variable, you
can't parse data that you don't know exactly what format the variables are - and
so you need to know how many records to read.....
So ignore that.

I think I might have a way to process the data in LibreOffice/OpenOffice to
generate an include file with the formatted arrays.
But that might take a while since it's been months since I've looked at my
ridiculously complicated spreadsheet from my last job....
So the new plan is to use a 3rd party tool (commercial, or hand-written
C++/C#/whatever) to just strip out anything but the numeric data lines, and make
arrays of all the data sets.
I see what I can do, unless you beat me to it ;)
