Units for Windows

Units: unit conversion and calculation




Units is a program for units conversion and units calculation. The program converts quantities expressed in various scales to their equivalents in other scales. Units can only handle multiplicative scale changes. For example, it cannot convert Celsius to Fahrenheit but it can convert temperature differences between those temperature scales.

The units are defined in an external data file. Units comes with an extensive, well annotated data file that defines over 2000 units. Alternatively you can provide your own data file to suit your needs.

The Units database includes scientific values, historical units, and useful day to day values such as the densities of cooking ingredients, needed to convert between European and American recipes.

If you download the Setup program of the package, any requirements for running applications, such as dynamic link libraries (DLL's) from the dependencies as listed below under Requirements, are already included. If you download the package as Zip files, then you must download and install the dependencies zip file yourself. Developer files (header files and libraries) from other packages are however not included; so if you wish to develop your own applications, you must separately install the required packages.
