I used a similar command to write a POVRay scene file yesterday. I didn't
get satisfying results, since for instance 1/3 is represented as
"1.\n--\n3." which is ofcourse useless for input in other programs.
The expression I finaly used was : ToString[#,CForm]& which seems to turn
everything to Real number form. POVRay worked just fine with it..
