physics-unit - Helper script for the Physics::Unit Perl module
physics-unit meters # Returns information about the unit 'meters' physics-unit -e # Exports lists of units as HTML physics-unit --help/-h # Shows a usage message
Physics::Unit is a Perl module for managing units and unit conversions. The
physics-unit script retrieves unit and type information from the main module for reference purposes. Do not use this script from your code, use the Physics::Unit module instead. This script's interface is subject to change, the main module's API is much more stable.
physics-unit [options] [name(s)|expression(s)] If reserved words, unit or type names, or unit expressions, are given on the command line, this prints a block of information for each to STDOUT. The options -e, -t, and -u, on the other hand, cause comprehensive lists of data to be dumped from the unit library. -e --export Export a complete list of known units and types as HTML documents. Prints the names of the created files to STDOUT, this allows: firefox `physics-unit -e` -h --help Shows a usage message and exits. Overrides all other options. -t --types Print a list of types (one per line) to STDOUT. -u --units Print a list of units (one per line) to STDOUT.
