Physics/Unit version 0.53 ========================= This tarball includes the following modules Physics::Unit Physics::Unit::Scalar Physics::Unit::Scalar::Implementation - pod docs Physics::Unit::Script Physics::Unit::Script::GenPages Physics::Unit::Implementation - pod docs Objects of class Physics::Unit define units of measurement that correspond to physical quantities. This module allows you to manipulate these units, generate new derived units from other units, and convert from one unit to another. Each unit is defined by a conversion factor and a dimensionality vector. Objects of type Physics::Unit::Scalar store physical quantities. Each instance of a class that derives from Physics::Unit::Scalar holds the value of some type of measurable quantity. When you use this module, several new classes are immediately available. See the Derived Classes section of the documentation for a complete list The module Physics::Unit::ScalarSubtypes defines several classes that derive from Physics::Unit::Scalar, each corresponding to a different physical quantity. SEE ALSO The perldoc documentation for each of the above modules for more information. Example scripts in the eg/ directory. INSTALLATION To install this module, on Unix, use the following: perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install On Windows, from a command window: perl Build.PL Build Build test Build install DEPENDENCIES This module is pure Perl, and the depends only on Carp.
