POV-Ray FrontEnd

Motivation

This was my first attempt to develop a GUI driven ARexx script/program. Main
trigger was
the publication of the "apig.library", which is a wrapper for GUI and graphics
functions of
the AmigaOS for ARexx. Later on a lot more of similar libraries with much more
convinient
and more straightforward handling were published (i.e. TritonRexx, rxMUI, ...).

What is it for?

This is a frontend GUI for the POV-Ray raytracer version 2 (Aminet:
gfx/3d/povray881) -
it might work with higher versions of POV-Ray, but it is not tested. The main
purpose of this
frontend is to make it easier to use all these unix-ified, cryptic command line
switches of
POV-Ray.

What else?

While in 2010 this sort of software is outdated, it might nevertheless be an
example for those
who like to make some fancy GadTools GUI with/for their ARexx scripts. Sorry,
all texts (comments,
guide) are still in German, but it should be rather easy to extract all needed
information.

Installation

You need of course the apig.library (Aminet: util/rexx/APIG) in your LIBS:
drawer and the POV-Ray
executables (Aminet: gfx/3d/povray881) should be in the same directory as PRFE.
