I apologize for my rudeness. Yes, I did follow the link. No, I did not see the
small clipboard icon on that page until it was outlined for me in a red
rectangle, in a separate reply on a different forum.

If the appropriate reply is RTFM, then please which manual do you refer to? I do
not seek to fan a flame war. Perhaps I should discuss this particular issue with
the GitHub web admins. The POVray team continues to do an outstanding job. All
I'm saying is, if basic information is easy to provide, then fewer newbies will
flail about trying to understand if it is provided.
