        illumead is intended for measuring an illuminant
and estimating its UV (Ultra Violet) content for the purposes
of FWA/OBE correction. Since the ColorMunki is effectively
UV filtered, it isn't suitable for this purpose.

If you just want to measure the illuminant spectrum in the visible
light range, use spotread, ie:

  spotread -e -H

take a reading and then press 's'

  Enter filename (ie. xxxx.sp):


Note you can use -e or -a, depending on what you want to do.
