Warning: This information applies to the Entisoft Units Windows Executable Program.
The stand-alone Windows program features an interactive calculator, list of known units and prefixes, tip wizard, recall list, and user program windows. All user input and calculated results are shown with the physical measurements that they represent. For example, any measurements of the form "length per time" (e.g. "miles per hour") are described as "speed". The units mentioned in all input and result expressions can be enumerated. For example, the program will tell you that "kg*m^2" was interpreted as "kilogram meter^2" Any remaining units are returned in the standard SI units for the physical measurement. For example, measurements of energy such as "kilowatt hours" are displayed in joules (the SI unit of energy). Results can optionally be displayed in terms of the fundamental base units (kilograms, meters, seconds, amperes, etc.) Result window changes colors to indicate when units are matched or mismatched or when there is an error. Several menu items control the content and format of the units and prefixes list. User-defined unit and prefix definitions can be entered into the program directly or read from a text file. Results are formatted as appropriate to show as much information as possible within the result window. Results are calculated and displayed as soon as there is a pause in your typing--no need to press {Enter} to perform the calculation.
