units (version 1.85)

The `units' program converts quantities expressed in various scales to their equivalents in other scales. The `units' program can handle multiplicative scale changes as well as nonlinear conversions such as Fahrenheit to Celsius.

The units are defined in an external data file. You can use the extensive data file that comes with this program, or you can provide your own data file to suit your needs.

You can use the program interactively with prompts, or you can use it from the command line.
