Synopsis

    units
    units [options] [from-unit to-unit]

Interactively supply a formula to convert a number from one unit to another. Use EOF to exit. Known units are maintained in a system table, and the GNU/Linux and Mac OS X versions let you supply your own units file. They also allow you to supply units on the command line, so that the program can be used in a batch fashion.

GNU/Linux and Mac OS X Common Options

-ffile, --file=file

Read units from file.

-q, --quiet, --silent

Do not prompt, and do not display statistics.

GNU/Linux Options

-c, --check

Verify that all units reduce to primitive units.

--check-verbose
