The quantities package

[Tags:bsd3, library, program, test]

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.
