American/British measurement units conversion (Converter2).


Description: Generation of exercises concerning the conversion of lengths, surfaces, volumes, capacities and weights. The program, being intended for primary school pupils in the USA and the United Kingdom, the units used in the exercises are those, being part of the American resp. British measurement system (but, also includes "limited" questions concerning the conversion of American/British to international units). For international measurement units conversions, you should use my "Converter" application, instead.
The units used are those described in Encyclopædia Britannica. And, really important, to ensure that correct answers are evaluated as correct, the conversion-factors, used by "Converter2" are those listed on this site (e.g. 1 mi = 1,609 km, and not 1 mi = ‪1,609344‬, as does the MS Windows "Calculator" application). Please, also note that weights are always for avdp and that (for programming simplicity), several units are not supported by the current version 1.0; this is the case for: furlong, fathom, acre, board foot, cord and stone.

Free Pascal features: Filling a combobox during runtime. Basic controls: menus, edit fields, memos, combo boxes, (push) buttons.
