The quantities package

[ Tags: bsd3, data, library, math, physics, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

A library for creating and manipulating physical quantities, which are a numerical value associated with a unit of measurement. Included is an expression parser and a huge list of predefined quantities with which to parse strings into a Quantity datatype. Once created, a quantity can be converted to different units or queried for its dimensionality. A user can also operate on quantities arithmetically, and doing so uses automatic unit conversion and simplifcation.
