       glare - perform glare and visual comfort calculations


       glare [ glarefile [ picture [ octree ] ] ]


       Glare  is  an  interactive script for executing programs used to locate
       glare sources and compute glare indices and visual comfort probability.
       If  no  glarefile is given, the program prompts the user for a one.  If
       the file does not exist, glare asks the user some questions  about  the
       scene  in question then runs findglare(1) to compute values to store in
       the file.  Glare then presents the user a menu of available glare index
       calculations.   After choosing a calculation, glare offers to store the
       result (usually not useful) or  plot  the  information  (but  only  for
       multiple glare angles).

       If  you  are  creating  a new glarefile, it usually works best to start
       with a displayed image for reference during the interrogation.
