Detailed Description

This package provides all the facilities to create and question a dictionary of units, and also to manipulate measurements which are real values with units.

Member Function Documentation

◆ Convert()

static Standard_Real Units::Convert ( const Standard_Real  avalue,
const Standard_CString  afirstunit,
const Standard_CString  asecondunit 
)
static

Converts <avalue> expressed in <afirstunit> into the <asecondunit>.

◆ DictionaryOfUnits()

static Handle< Units_UnitsDictionary > Units::DictionaryOfUnits ( const Standard_Boolean  amode = Standard_False)
static

Returns a unique instance of the dictionary of units. If <amode> is True, then it forces the recomputation of the dictionary of units.

◆ Dimensions()

static Handle< Units_Dimensions > Units::Dimensions ( const Standard_CString  aType)
static

return the dimension associated to the Type

◆ FirstQuantity()

static Standard_CString Units::FirstQuantity ( const Standard_CString  aunit)
static

Returns the first quantity string founded from the unit <aUnit>.

◆ FromSI() [1/2]

static Standard_Real Units::FromSI ( const Standard_Real  aData,
const Standard_CString  aUnit 
)
static

◆ FromSI() [2/2]

static Standard_Real Units::FromSI ( const Standard_Real  aData,
const Standard_CString  aUnit,
Handle< Units_Dimensions > &  aDim 
)
static

◆ LexiconFile()

static void Units::LexiconFile ( const Standard_CString  afile)
static

Defines the location of the file containing the lexicon useful in manipulating composite units.

◆ LexiconFormula()

static Handle< Units_Lexicon > Units::LexiconFormula ( )
static

Return a unique instance of LexiconFormula.

◆ LexiconUnits()

static Handle< Units_Lexicon > Units::LexiconUnits ( const Standard_Boolean  amode = Standard_True)
static

Returns a unique instance of the Units_Lexicon. If <amode> is True, it forces the recomputation of the dictionary of units, and by consequence the completion of the Units_Lexicon.

◆ NullDimensions()

static Handle< Units_Dimensions > Units::NullDimensions ( )
static

Returns always the same instance of Dimensions.

◆ Quantity()

static Handle< Units_Quantity > Units::Quantity ( const Standard_CString  aquantity)
static

Returns a unique quantity instance corresponding to <aquantity>.

◆ ToSI() [1/2]

static Standard_Real Units::ToSI ( const Standard_Real  aData,
const Standard_CString  aUnit 
)
static

◆ ToSI() [2/2]

static Standard_Real Units::ToSI ( const Standard_Real  aData,
const Standard_CString  aUnit,
Handle< Units_Dimensions > &  aDim 
)
static

◆ UnitsFile()

static void Units::UnitsFile ( const Standard_CString  afile)
static

Defines the location of the file containing all the information useful in creating the dictionary of all the units known to the system.
