Hello,
I would like to use Pov-Ray so as to build pictures from files that my Python
program has made. The problem is that for the moment I have to use the GUI of
Pov-Ray to do that. I would like to have 'directly' the picture build by
Pov-Ray.

Why this functionnality is only possible with Linux ? A simple line command
interface could be a good think for programmers who wants to use Pov-Ray.

Christophe.

It works fine on windows. Invoke it like this:

pvengine.exe mypicture.pov /render /exit

Put the full path before pvengine if you need to.
