RE: (42S, Free42) Unit Conversion Suite
(edited twice already to fix bugs in the printout ;-)
I'm almost done rewriting this completely, just to see if it could be done.
I define each unit category as a matrix. First column is the alpha data; second is the multiplier, in case of TEMP the third column is the additive constant.
So eg. TEMP will look like

Code:
"TEMP" [ 4x3 Matrix ]
[[ "°C" 1 0 ]
 [ "°F" 5.55555555556E-1 32 ]
 [ "K" 1 273.15 ]
 [ "R" 5.55555555556E-1 491.67 ]
]

Then I have a single column matrix with all categories that I call CCAT, so

Code:
"CCAT" [ 12x1 MATRIX  ]
[[ "LENG"  ]
 [ "AREA"  ]
 [ "VOL"   ]
 [ "TIME"  ]
 [ "SPEED" ]
 [ "ACCEL" ]
 [ "MASS"  ]
 [ "FORCE" ]
 [ "ENERG" ]
 [ "POWER" ]
 [ "PRESS" ]
 [ "TEMP"  ]
]

Then all we need is a routine that will build a menu (with paging if necessary) out of the first column of a matrix, and treats the item chosen.
And so I end up with a single program that can treat as many conversions as you like - just define new matrices as you go along and add categories.
The routine is not 100% finished, but it already works as it is, so yes, it can be done ;-). The only drawback is that Free42 does not allow you to export a matrix, only programs. So I'll have to provide a one-shot program that creates the matrices. Here's the current to-be-worked-on version for the interested:

No .raw file as yet though.
