1.2.8 Setting POV-Ray Options
POV-Ray was originally created as a command-line program for operating systems without graphical interfaces, dialog
boxes and pull-down menus. Most versions of POV-Ray still use command-line switches to tell it what to do. This
documentation assumes you are using the command-line version. If you are using Macintosh, MS-Windows or other GUI
versions, there will be dialog boxes or menus which do the same thing. There is system-specific documentation for each
system describing the specific commands.
There are two distinct ways of setting POV-Ray options (other than through the GUI interface, if applicable) :
command line switches and INI file keywords. Both are explained in detail in the following sections.
