/* ************ a table of the form: **************

struct of_units {

char *name; Name of Unit

float value; Value - Initially set to 0

float conversion; Conversion factor to Primary Unit

int counter; Number of units in this group

}

The primary unit is the first unit listed in the unit group.

Always include an even number of entries in the group even

if this means that the last entry is blank. Then, set the

number of entries to the correct odd number...this is to

handle displays correctly... For example, see the mass

entry below.

Bug... I should include the Unit Group Menu info in this

file in order to make it easier to include more unit types.

Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
