Units unit conversion programunits
is a Unix computer program
for conversion of units of weights and measures
. It has a huge database of units
, including esoteric
and historical units. This for instance allows you to convert velocities specified in furlongs per fortnight
, if you really wish.
The database units.dat, in plain text format, is in fact a good source of information in itself.
units has been a standard part of Unix since the early Bell Laboratories versions.
The GNU free software version is written by Adrian Mariano.
