    Depends if the glass is tinted, for one. Since this thought experiment assumes you're meterless, and I'm assuming you have some experience in judging exposures, then I'd recommend viewing the scene outside directly, then coming inside and viewing it through the window, and judging your exposure accordingly. Since there are no standards for window transparency, especially with the possibility of some special coating or treatment on the glass, what else could you do?

    Oh, and bracket your exposures.

    After trying to remember where i put the thing, some rummaging, trying to think again, some more opening of bags, cabinets, and boxes, and finally finding my spot meter, i just gave it a try.

    I can report that, pointing the thing at the same something, both direct and through a regular window pane, it makes no difference at all as long as there is no battery in the meter.
    Must go shop for some...

    That's why I love my L-508. Incident and spot, and it uses a single AA battery.
