How do I install the povray.exe CLI interface on Windows? I find the GUI
annoying. I want to be able to run the same scripts that I do on unix on my
Windows system, but I find pvengine with a bunch of hard to use parameters like
/EXIT and /RENDER. Also, the Windows GUI likes to make noise, etc.

I am currently working around this by using the Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux
feature to install the Ubuntu POV-Ray binaries. But this is bulky because I have
to invoke the Ubuntu version of the povray CLI through an Ubuntu shell or
indirectly via bash -c "povray". When can I look forward to the

like the povray CLI for unix?
