Package for converting some generic object.

Project Description

Generic Converter


Package for parsing as string quantities with or without units.

Basic usages

>>> from generic_converter.units import SmartUnitsConverter
>>> c = SmartUnitsConverter()
>>> c.convert('2.78 daN*mm^2', 'mN*µm^2')
>>> Decimal('2.78E+10')
>>> c.convert('2.78', 'mN*µm^2', 'daN*mm^2')
>>> Decimal('2.78E+10')

Note: It is necessary to provide the value as a string. Indeed, the high precision of conversion (1E-27) is possible only with string, by using Decimal object in replacement of float object.
