    Exporting to POV-ray

    Can anyone show me a way to write Data to a file, with extension .POV, and then run POV-ray to render the scene? or if there is any programs like that out there that I can use to study? I am using win XP.

    Thanx

    Go to www.wotsit.org and look up the .pov file format. Or search google for open source programs that do what you want.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    What I meant was that I wanted to know how to write data to a file outside of C++, like a .txt or other format, I need to be able to add to this info without deleting what I previously wrote. I was also wondering if you can start another program while in a C++ program


    thanx

    Open the file for append instead of write.

    Yes, look up the system() function
