** Super Conversions 1988 by Matt Hart
** 2400 S. MacArthur Lot 306
** OKC, OK 73128
*************************************************************************
** Super Conversions is a physics/chemical reference program that
** also converts from one type of unit to another. A total of 15,105
** different combinations are available. The categories supported
** under version 1 are:
**
** Distance
** Area
** Volume
** Weight
** Power
** Pressure
** Temperature
** Time
** Currency
**
** As far as I can tell from available references, the conversions
** of distance, area, volume, weight, temperature, time, and currency
** are all exactly correct. But the only reference I had for power
** and pressure had highly visible errors, and some not so easily
** found. So if there is an obvious wrong conversion in any those units,
** PLEASE contact me with a correction. Also, if you know of a
** measurement unit not supported, contact me (details at the end of
** this document) and I will add it to the selections.
** Conversions of volume also include kitchen volume conversions.
** Unless otherwise noted, or in the case of two-like measurements,
** such as Liquid ounces (Volume) and Ounces (Weight), the unit listed
** is LIQUID rather then DRY.
***************************************************************************
** If you have a unit you wish added, or even a complete NEW category,
** send in your registration (if not registered), the NEW Unit and
** category, the telephone number of the BBS you downloaded Super
** Conversions from, and the conversion factor. Conversion factors are:
**
** Category Preferred Conversion to
** -------- -----------------------
** Distance Meters
** Area Square Meters
** Volume Liters
** Weight Grams
** Power Watts
** Pressure Pascals
** Temperature Degrees C
** Time Days
** Currency $1.00 USA
**
** Also tell me whether the NEW unit is SMALLER or LARGER than the one
** you show a conversion to. In other words, 10 decimeters equals 1
** meter, and decimeters are SMALLER than meters. It can be confusing
** when not sure whether the new unit is large or small.
** NOTE:
** If you are unable to show a conversion to one of the above
** PREFERRED units, then convert to any one of the already supported units.
****************************************************************************
** REGISTRATION & SOURCE CODE LICENSING:
**
** Super Conversions is written in Compiler BASIC using Microsoft
** QuickBASIC 4.0. The ASCII source code is available for a license fee of
** $35.00 and will run fine in GW-BASIC/BASICA. To register Super
** Conversions, send $8.00 and a self-addressed stamped envelope to the above
** listed author. For a copy of the newest version, please include a disk
** and enough postage to cover its mailing (about $0.75).
** One of the things that makes purchasing the source code worth
** the price, is the ease of adding your own conversion units or categories.
** Only 2 bytes need be changed plus the unit and a single number to add a
** conversion unit, and to add a category, only 1 byte plus one line number,
** and a couple of data statements need be changed/added. Instructions on
** adding categories and units are included with the source code.
*****************************************************************************
** Terms:
**
** Troy -- Troy weight, Troyes, France standard
** Apoth -- Apothecary, System used primarily in compounding and
** dispensing drugs
** Avoir -- Avoirdupois, System used in Britian and the U.S. E.G.--The
** pound (avoir) is the normal U.S. pound.
******************************************************************************
** Miscellaneous Instructions:
**
** Listings of COMPUTER BASE VALUES [c]
** ASCII CODES [e]
** and IBM ASCII ENTENDED CODES [f]
** can be exitted while listing by pressing [ESC]
**
** The CURRENT CURRENCY VALUES [h] selection is provided for changing
** the values of different world currencies against the US dollar. I
** suggest running the short, provided program {CURRPRNT.bas} to get a
** complete listing of the currency values and, more importantly, the
** numbers given the values by SUPER Conversions. When selecting currency
** numbers to {1} Change or {2} Convert, you need not see it on the screen
** to enter its number. Just type the value {1-162}. Entering [-1] on
** the listing of CURRENT CURRENCY VALUES [h] will abort the listing and
** return you to the Main Menu.
**
** Pressing [i] from the Main Menu will give you the conversions menu
** and the above listed conversion categories to select from.
**
******************************************************************************
** LOADING CURRPRNT.BAS:

**
** Method 2:Two drives
** Insert disk containing CURRPRNT.BAS and
** CURRENCY.DAT into drive b
** Insert DOS disk containing BASIC.EXE into
** drive a
** Type:
** B>a:basic currprnt
