Yes, what casio has done is make a "unitless prefix". They've never really done actual units. HP has always been far and above the rest with support for units and standard prefixes and similar. Thats why you can directly do things like 9.8_(mm/ms^2) and have it work and correctly handle all the conversions.

Now I DO see a potential desire to let people directly type in on of those prefixes and have it work as an equivalent 1E-6 for example. I just want to be careful how I implement it to make it as useful as possible and not just a "match exactly what the cheap casio scientifics do".

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.
