Summary: Conversion Utility
The 'units' program converts quantities expressed in various scales to
their equivalents in other scales.

Units can also convert temperature values (Fahrenheit to Celsius, for
example) but this needs a slightly different input syntax. See the man
page for details.






* Wed Nov 01 2017
  - units 2.16:
    * Fix missing USD currency code (update to units_cur and
    definitions.units only).
  - includes changes from 2.15:
    * The old timegenie service has vanished.  A new units_cur script
      uses server. The new script works directly in Python 2
      or Python 3 and no longer depends on unidecode.
    * Some currency definitions (e.g. currencies pegged to the euro)
      have moved out of definitions.units into currency.units.
    * Added bitcoin to currency.units
    * Fixed a memory leak bug for invalid exponent operations
* Mon Apr 03 2017
  - units 2.14:
    * Eliminated parser memory management limitation affecting long
      input expressions (e.g. a sum of more than 100 units)
    * Control characters are treated as white space rather than
      producing an error about invalid UTF-8.
* Thu Jun 23 2016
  - units 2.13:
    * Corrected error in heat of vaporization of water
    * Fixed bug where single character unicode prefixes couldn't
      combined with the second "s", so microsecond couldn't be
    * Fixed bug where -H '' option would write history to ~/.history.
    * Added -fpic compile option so that it is possible to compile to
      a library
* Thu Oct 15 2015
  - Update to 2.12
    * Updated and revised units database, with constants now based
      on 2014 CODATA.
    * Readline history is persistent and is saved to
      ~/.units_history, or to the file specified with --history (-H)
    * Fixed bug where '_' didn't give last result after conversion
      to function.
    * Fixed sporadic segmentation fault with --log.
    * Comments allowed on interactive input with '#', most useful
      with logging.
    * Added configure test for rl_completion_suppress_append, which
      helps compilation under MacOS.
    * Comment processing happens before checking UTF-8
      validity---comments are allowed to contain bogus UTF-8.
    * Changed units_cur to skip bogus precious metals data from
      timegenie and to skip currencies with no rate.
  - Cleanups spec file with spec-cleaner
  - Update usage of gpg signature
  - Move info scriplet to preun
  - Enable units_cur builiding by default
* Mon Apr 07 2014
  - GNU Units 2.11:
    * Many long options didn't work
    * units_cur wouldn't print to stdout
* Sat Mar 29 2014
  - install documentation files, including COPYING
* Thu Mar 27 2014
  - GNU Units 2.10:
    * Added '_' to represent the previous result.
    * Added support for rational exponents with numerators larger
      than 1 so you can do calculations like liter^2|3.
    * Added logging with --log (-L) option.
    * Fixed some unit definitions (R_infinity, planckmass), and added
      R_K90 and K_J90 for the conventional values of the von Klitzing
      and Josephson constants.
    * Don't use readline unless reading from a tty.
    * Display of nonlinear unit definitions shows the range over which
      the unit is defined and the required dimensions of the argument.
    * Unit completion with readline will now complete nonlinear units,
      functions  (e.g. cuberoot), prefixes, and unit list aliases. It
      will no longer insert a space after the completion.
    * Running "units --version" returns success.
    * Combining "--version" with "--terse" gives a terse version
    * Combining "--version" with "--verbose" or running with "--info"
      gives a detailed output of how units was compiled and where its
      supporting files are found.
    * A nonlinear unit can be defined equal to another nonlinear unit
      using the syntax: "newfunc() oldfunc".
    * Domain and range specified with nonlinear units can be open
      intervals, indicated  by parentheses instead of brackets.
    * The "noerror" keyword on a nonlinear unit supresses error
      checking with "units --check" for that unit.
    * Changes to units_cur to work with timegenie changes and to
      support Python 3.
      The Python module unidecode is now required for units_cur.
    * The method for finding supporting files has changed when units
      is compiled to be relocatable.
    * Fix to compile with Bison 3.0.
    * Improved error messages for various cases.
    * Some simple icons are included.
  - licence is GPL-3.0+
  - run minimal unit tests
  - spec file cleaning
  - note that make install fails with smp_flags
  - support optional build with units_cur for updating units
    (requires python-Unidecode, not in Factory)
* Mon Sep 09 2013
  - updated to version 2.02:
    * Added support for %a and %A output formats (hexadecimal floating point), and
      eliminated the restriction on the number of displayed digits when specifying
      an output format with the --output-format (-o) option.  Improved error
      handling for formats specified with --output-format.
    * Added --digits (-d) to specify the number of digits to display.  Giving
      '--digits max' (-dmax) will use the full available precision.
    * Added support for various Unicode minus sign symbols.  Units now treats the
      figure dash (U+2012), the en dash (U+2013), and the minus (U+2212) as
      identical to the ASCII hyphen/minus symbol (U+002D).
    * The !message command in units data files has been fixed so it does not
      produce output when the --quiet option is given.
    * Improved error handling when unit names end with numbers without a '_'.
    * Modified units_cur to work with XML format as the txt format disappeared.
    * Corrected error in definition of the nat.
    * Improved manual.
  - employ gpg-offline
* Thu Nov 01 2012
  - updated to version 2.01:
    * Fixed error in electronmass
    * New definition for au
    * Fixed DESTDIR support for installation
    * Changed configure script for success with Solaris
    * Small changes to manual
  - removed build.patch
* Tue Aug 07 2012
  - updated to version 2.00:
      General changes:
    * Unit lists provide conversion to sums of units (e.g. feet and inches).
    * Added --round (-r) and --show-factor (-S) options for use with unit lists.
    * Added unit lists aliases (e.g. time, usvol).
    * A python script, units_cur, can update currency data.
    * Units now flushes its output so you can talk to it with a pipe.
    * Units now works in UTF-8 if the system supports it.
    * Added --locale (-l) option to set the locale.
    * English units such as the gallon are defined in all locales, with US
      definitions by default except in the en_BG locale.  You can force
      the desired definition (Great Britain or US) by setting the
      environment variable UNITS_ENGLISH to GB or US.
    * Revised and extended the documentation, with more examples.
    * Added locale mapping to address Windows locale names.
    * Updated and revised units database, including UTF-8 definitions and
      the 2010 CODATA.
    * Fixed parsing bug for "1..2" or "1.2.3".  These now give an error.
    * Unit names can end with a number in the form of a subscript that
      starts with a '_', as in 'X_3'.
      Changes for units definition files:
    * Changed location and names of unit database, splitting off currency
      Files are /usr/local/share/units/{definitions,currency}.units and
      the personal units file is $HOME/.units instead of $HOME/units.dat.
    * Personal units filename can be changed with MYUNITSFILE environment variable.
    * Prefixes can be defined in any order: it is no longer necessary to
      define longer ones before shorter ones.
    * New definitions replace previous ones.  Personal units file is read
      after the system file rather than before.
    * Changed syntax for function definitions.  Instead of [in-unit,out-unit]
      you must now write units=[in-unit,out-unit].  Use 'units -c' to find
      places in your personal data files that need to be updated.
    * Add optional domain and range to function definitions with syntax
      domain=[min,max] and range=[min,max].  Either min or max can be
      omitted to signal infinity.
    * Unit list aliases can be defined with !unitlist command.
    * Added !var and !varnot and !endvar to include definitions based on
      environment variable settings.
    * Added !set to set environment variables (if they aren't already set).
    * Added !message to display a message
    * Data files are in UTF-8, with !utf8 and !endutf8 commands to mark
      definitions that require UTF-8 support.
    * Improved error handling when reading units.dat.
