Default 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
