Here's an example: utUnit unit = utScan("millimoles per meter^3); double amountOfUnit = ... utUnit stdUnit = utScan("micromoles per liter"); double scale, offset; utConvert(unit, stdUnit, &scale, &offset); printf("The concentration is %g micromoles per liter\n", amountOfUnit*scale); I've omitted any tests for errors or unit compatibility. The idea is that, if you have a canonical unit (to which everything should be related) then you can convert all values to that unit in order to display them. > Regards, > Rashad Regards, Steve Emmerson
