"Unum is a Python module that allows defining and manipulating true quantities, i.e. numbers with units like volts, hours, meter-per-second. Consistency between units is checked at each expression evaluation; unit conversion and unit output formatting are performed automatically when needed."
I mainly work on reinsurance industry software, and we only really care about money, so I won't find much use for this. But it's worth keeping a note of - should I ever need to work with physical quantities in future, this package looks like it would be worth its weight in gold.Posted to Python by Simon Brunning at November 17, 2003 12:05 PM
