In this web interface, you can enter any arbitrarily complex Frink
expression (see the documentation) in the "From:"
box and click "Calculate". If you also enter a value in the "To:" box, it
is treated as the right-hand side of a conversion expression (that is, to
the right of the conversion operator
Thus, to convert 10 meters to feet, you can enter
10 meters in the "From" box and
feet in the "To" box, or, equivalently, type
10 meters -> feet in the
"From" box and leave the "To" box empty. It does exactly the same thing.
Didn't find the unit you were looking for? Got "undefined symbol" or other
errors? Try reading the FAQ for common
issues. Frink is case-sensitive. To find the name Frink uses for an
obscure unit, type part or all of the word in the "Lookup" box (in upper-
or lower-case; the lookup is not case-sensitive) and click the
"Lookup" button, or, better yet, if you're, say, looking for information
about the moon, type
??moon in the "From:" box
and click the "Calculate" button. See the Integrated Help section of
the documentation for more ways to look up units.
Note: You can now set variables in this interface that will last for the duration of your session.
