ConvertAll is a cross-platform and open source graphical software written in the Python programming language around the Qt toolkit and designed to allow users to easily convert between several units, from inches per decade, from meter to pounds, as well as from cubic to nautical miles.
Combine units any way you want
Users will be able to type the base units for conversion or select them from a list, using either a full name or an abbreviation. The software also allows you to easily combine units using the "/" and "*" operators, as well as the "^" operator.
Supports over 400 units
ConvertAll supports conversion of units with non-linear scales, such as temperature, basic mathematical expressions, as well as over 400 units. The program works on both GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Installing ConvertAll is the easiest of tasks, as all you have to do is to find the pre-built binary package in the main software repositories of your GNU/Linux distribution, using the built-in package manager app, and install it with a single mouse click.
It is also possible to install the software using its freely distributed source tarball, by downloading it from Softpedia, saving it somewhere on your computer, extracting its contents, opening the Terminal app and running the ‘sudo python setup.py install’ command.
Getting started with ConvertAll
After installation, open the application from the main menu of your desktop environment. Users will be prompted by a ‘Tip of the day’ dialog, from where they can learn how to use some of the program’s functionality.
To convert units, simply select the from unit and the to unit. Yes, it’s that simple! However, please keep in mind that some units are incompatible with others. Also, don’t forget to add the number of units you want to convert.
