eulumdat photometry tools

As I know, handling of luminaire data can cause quite a headache. Just happened to me, as I got some Eulumdat-formatted files. First I tried Carsten's eulum2ies, but it crashes - I guess due to the hight resolution in 1 degree steps for my files. Then I found something quite interesting:

It is a QT-based tool, loading eulumdat files, processing the content so that it can be displayed and edited in tables, creates some plot, and - converts to IES!

Unfortunately I was not able to compile the QT3-sources, my knowledge on QT is limited. But at least the Windows-binary runs without any problems under Wine here.

So maybe someone finds this useful, cheers,

Lars.

Hint: Qt4 was released a looong time ago now :wink:
On Debian the following works fine to build it:
qmake-qt4
make

I have nothing here to test it, but the program stars just fine then.

Have fun,

Bernd
