I have written scripts in both POV-Ray and OpenSCAD, and I can tell by looking
at the output of that github repository, that you'd be far better off learning
to make the minor modifications to an existing OpenSCAD script in order to
convert it to a POV-Ray SDL scene.

The languages are nearly identical, the SDL scene that you write will be
shorter, more understandable, will parse and render faster, and will look better
and be more useful.

Now, having said that, since you're using a 9-year-old conversion utility, it
might be worth looking into what version it was designed to work with.  I'd
guess it was 3.6.

Also  - what aren't you getting right?
Does it run?
Do you get a POV-Ray SDL scene as output?
If you're running that in POV-Ray, what version are you using, and what errors
are you seeing?
