UNIX: Using 'units' to help measure and time things!

video UNIX: Using 'units' to help measure and time things!
In this video I'll go over using the unix program called units. It's for converting measurements from one unit type to another. It's a simple program but very powerful. This should be enough to get you off the ground when it comes to using it. units became one of my top used tools shortly after discovering it. It's probably fourth after ssh, grep, and vim.
units is an incredibly useful tool, but I mostly just use it to mess with people.

Wow, I'm surprised its so high on your list... cd or ls is probably my highgest. Then rm, echo, cat, sed, grep, vim...

Actually you're right. I'm a big fan of cd, ls, cd, ls, waiting 5 minutes, ls, ls, ls etc etc. Hah!
