Radiance Manual Pages

The following are the manual pages of the Radiance command line tools as included with Rayfront, both in HTML and PDF format.

Note that not all of those programs may be present for all platforms. Some programs are from external sources and not part of the original Radiance distribution. Rayfront makes internal use of a number of the programs from this list, and obviates a few others. The full set of binaries and their manpages is included for convenience and for the better understanding of the underlying simulation system. Using any of them may or may not make sense in the context of this package.
