[UDUNITS #KMJ-592371]: searchable list of udunits 2 units?



Nan,

> Will there be a viewable page for udunits v2 which we can use to
> search for units without needing to download the whole package?
> There's a very useful page like that for v1,  at
> http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/udunits/udunits-1/etc/udunits.dat
> and very nice to be able to search for terms with a browser.

Good idea.  I'll see what I can do.

In the meantime, I've attached the files that comprise the XML database.

> If this page exists for udunits-2, I can't find it.  I don't necessarily
> need the whole package on every system I work on, but often just
> want to check unit names while I'm developing code on a laptop.
> 
> Thanks - Nan Galbraith
