PhysiCell POV-writer (Version 1.0.0)

This is an adaptation of Paul Macklin's 3-D cancer immune visualizations.
This processes a series of PhysiCell digital snapshots to create POV files for 3-D raytracing.
Note that users will then need to run POV-Ray on the .pov files, and potentially annotate them (e.g., with ImageMagick) and stitch them together into a movie (e.g., via mencocder).
Please see http://mathcancer.org/blog/povwriter for a full tutorial.
povwriter : run povwriter with config file ./config/settings.xml povwriter FILENAME.xml : run povwriter with config file FILENAME.xml povwriter x:y:z : run povwriter on data in FOLDER with indices from x to y in incremenets of z Example: ./povwriter 0:2:10 processes files: ./FOLDER/FILEBASE00000000_physicell_cells.mat ./FOLDER/FILEBASE00000002_physicell_cells.mat ... ./FOLDER/FILEBASE00000010_physicell_cells.mat (See the config file to set FOLDER and FILEBASE) povwriter x1,...,xn : run povwriter on data in FOLDER with indices x1,...,xn Example: ./povwriter 1,3,17 processes files: ./FOLDER/FILEBASE00000001_physicell_cells.mat ./FOLDER/FILEBASE00000003_physicell_cells.mat ./FOLDER/FILEBASE00000017_physicell_cells.mat (Note that there are no spaces.)
