SizeSelector.ByteUnits (Apache Ant API)
Class SizeSelector.ByteUnits




Enclosing class:

public static class SizeSelector.ByteUnits
extends EnumeratedAttribute

Enumerated attribute with the values for units.

This treats the standard SI units as representing powers of ten, as they should. If you want the powers of 2 that approximate the SI units, use the first two characters followed by a bi. So 1024 (2^10) becomes kibi, 1048576 (2^20) becomes mebi, 1073741824 (2^30) becomes gibi, and so on. The symbols are also accepted, and these are the first letter capitalized followed by an i. Ki, Mi, Gi, and so on. Capitalization variations on these are also accepted.

This binary prefix system is approved by the IEC and appears on its way for approval by other agencies, but it is not an SI standard. It disambiguates things for us, though.
