if we can find your old mentor or a new one. I hope you don't mind.

What about wims-modules-fr? I will assume your still maintaing that
too unless you tell me otherwise. Its just waiting for wims so you
needn't go looking whats wrong with it.

Anyone seen John O'Sullivan? John, are you reading this?
If not, anyone intrested in sponsoring or being mentor to:
Description: WWW Interactive Mathematics Server (WIMS)
An educational application server. Its interface is web
based allowing access from any site able to display HTML.
Wims is the engine/glue used by several individual applications
Description: French modules for WIMS
This package provides French content to be used by the
WWW Interactive Mathematics Server (WIMS).
Description: Parser for expressions concerning physical values
Units-filter is a basic standalone filter written in C language,
flex and bison. It inputs strings like "1.5e3 nN.m.s^-1" (it could
be the time growth ratio of a torque) and outputs the value in
standard SI unit, followed by the physical dimension of this value.
example :~/src$ echo 1.5e3 nN.m.s^-1 | units-filter
1.5e-06 2 1 -3 0 0 0 0 0 0
which means : 1.5e-06 (SI unit) m .kg.s
This parser can be embedded in educational test systems, in order to
analyze a student's answer to a problem of physics or chemistry.
