Someone asked for this so nicely:  tongue


that I have patched up a simple unit converter alias with the use of GNU units program


(wiki lists the windows binary link - you need to install it and/or GNU-WIN).

Here it is:

[copy or print]
1000>>>units>->showmemo Result:;;;appcapappendmemo C:\Program Files\Editing\GnuWin32\bin\units.exe "$$1" "$$2">+>units (.*) to (.*)

Naturally, you may need/want to modify the path and the expression.


units 100 miles/hour to km/hour

* 160.9344
