Well, that's fine. You don't have to get everything from one source. Larry is right though, units is a fine starting point. I'm still of the basic opinion that all of the logic can be handled through roles (classes?) and MMD, rather than trying to code up a units converter in parallel to the type system. -- Aaron Sherman <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Senior Systems Engineer and Toolsmith "It's the sound of a satellite saying, 'get me down!'" -Shriekback
