188.8.131.52 GUI for Unix POV-Ray?
"Does POV-Ray for Unix have a GUI like in Windows?"
POV-Ray has always been a command-line utility. Even the core code of POV-Ray for Windows is exactly the same as
the generic command-line POV-Ray. The graphical interfaces of the Windows and Mac versions of POV-Ray are exclusive to
them (and non-portable). They are much like separate "add-ons".
There is no official GUI done for the Unix version of POV-Ray. Some third-parties have tried to make some GUIs for
it (and you might find them in the links collection on our website)
but it seems to be a general phenomenon that Unix people like to use just the command-line version with a proper and
powerful text editor (such as Emacs).
I am sorry but there is no advice right now here about how to configure Emacs in order to smoothly handle POV-Ray
file editing, but I might write a page about that some day, when I have the time.
