Re: Why are there no "odd" torus primitives?

The naming convention was devised at a time when we were constrained by 8.3 filenames and wee needed four characters to specify the ratio to sufficient precision.

Primitives reference
tfforrrr.dat (The second and third characters of the filename ff denotes the sweep of torus, as an inverse fraction (01=1/1, 02=1/2, 04=1/4, 08=1/8, 16=1/16, 32=1/32, 48=1/48)).

I don't think it is too great an overhead to use t08o6250 + t16o6250 to build a 3/16 torus.
