My bad... Actually I was looking for a way to generate say a quarter cylinder (thus with 12 sections) torus?

Got it.  That, along with variable number of edges on the cross-sectional polygon, is dependent on my learning Google App Scripting.

In the meantime, I'm using MLCad to duplicate and rotate a section, a 4-4disc, and a 4-4edge simultaneously as many times as I need.  The added benefit is that my terminating disc and edge end up in the right place, though I do have to go back and delete the unneeded discs and edges.

Meanwhile, it appears that my interpretation of your comment about the control points for the condlines is not correct (based on existing torus primitives).  Time to dig in and figure this out.
