File UNITS > contains assignments for automatic conversion to MKS
metric units. Usage example: 5*FT + METER + CM; simplifies to
2.534*METER .
Erroneously dimensionally inhomogeneous expressions are revealed by
uncollected terms. For example, 5*FT + SECOND;
does not simplify to one term.
The supplied conversions comprise a rather complete set, but it should
be clear how to supplement them or produce an analagous set for
conversion to other units.
