Bug#491836: ITP: libmath-calc-units-perl -- Human-readable unit-aware calculator



Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Marc Haber <mh+debian-bugs@zugschlus.de>

* Package name    : libmath-calc-units-perl
  Version         : 1.06
  Upstream Author : Steve Fink <sfink@cpan.org>
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Math-Calc-Units/
* License         : GPL or Artistic
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Human-readable unit-aware calculator

 Math::Calc::Units is a simple calculator that keeps track of units. It
 currently handles combinations of byte sizes and duration only,
 although adding any other multiplicative types is easy. Any unknown
 type is treated as a unique user type (with some effort to map English
 plurals to their singular forms).
 .
 The primary intended use is via the ucalc script that prints out
 all of the "readable" variants of a value. For example, "3 bytes"
 will only produce "3 byte", but "3 byte / sec" produces the
 original along with "180 byte / minute", "10.55 kilobyte / hour",
 etc.
 .
 The Math::Calc::Units interface only provides for string-based
 computations, which could result in a large loss of precision for some
 applications.

Greetings
Marc
