NAME

units - With no arguments, will return the current type of units that MGED is using.

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

With no arguments, will return the current type of units that MGED is using. If a units_type is specified, MGED will switch to editing in the indicated units. The actual database is always stored in millimeters, and the display is adjusted to the users choice of units. If the units_type specified on the command line is one of the types allowed, it will be written to the database file as the preferred units and succeeding invocations will use those units. The units_type strings that will be remembered as the preferred editing unit are as follows:

o

o mm -- millimeters

o

o millimeter -- millimeters

o

o cm -- centimeters

o

o centimeter -- centimeters

o
