NAME

glarendx - calculate glare index

SYNOPSIS

glarendx -t type [ -h ] [ glarefile ]

DESCRIPTION

Glarendx computes the selected glare index type from the given glarefile produced by findglare(1). Glarendx computes one value for each (indirect illuminance) angle in the input file. If no glarefile is given, glarendx reads from the standard input. The -h option can be used to remove the information header from the output.

Glarendx understands the following arguments for type:

guth_vcp
Guth Visual Comfort Probability
cie_cgi
CIE Glare Index (Einhorn)
ugr
Unified Glare Rating
brs_gi
BRS Glare Index
dgi

guth_dgr
Guth Disability Glare Rating
vert_dir
Direct Vertical Illuminance
vert_ill

vert_ind

Alternatively, a symbolic or hard link to the program with any of the above names may be used in place of the type argument.
