Ancient Measures Converter
#1
Hi.

I have written a small tool converts ancient measures into today's measures. For all those who may need or want this small Windows program...

IMPORTANT
If you want it, contact me. I will send it by e-mail to you. It is a small software of only 700 KB unpacked, and packed of only 400 KB.
Or, you can download it at the Forum Navis Romana. It's there inside the software section.
Address: http://Navis.TerraRomana.org/Forum

Greetings,

Sven Littkowski

It looks really good, but a bit of (constructive!) criticisms. The main one is that you don't include Greek currency, which would be a very helpful inclusion (Obols <-> Drachmae <-> Talents). The other point is that the descriptive font is very small and hard to read being crammed in between the two tables. Other than that, though, it's a great little program that I can see getting a lot of use out of!

He had with him the selfsame rifle you see with him now, all mounted in german silver and the name that he\'d give it set with silver wire under the checkpiece in latin: Et In Arcadia Ego. Common enough for a man to name his gun. His is the first and only ever I seen with an inscription from the classics. - Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian

Greetings, MeinPanzer.

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, it is true: currently I have only the ancient Roman measures in use, since the focus of the Terra Romana project is just the Roman era.

But you have a point still, and if you could point to a website with exact measures of the ancient Greek time, I will review the software and MIGHT include the ancient Greek measures, as well. Not sure, though.

Small font: true. I will try to find another way for that special text. I knew it might be a problem.

Thanks again for your feedback. More feedbacks welcome!

Just kiddin'. Big Grin

Eleatic: Ha ha ha! True. But didn't mean you the English measures?

By the way, my software does this, up to a certain extent (distances).
