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

Daylight Glare Index

guth_dgr

Guth Disability Glare Rating

vert_dir

Direct Vertical Illuminance

vert_ill

Total Vertical Illuminance

vert_ind

Indirect Vertical Illuminance

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