Build Status

A library for compile-time type checking of arbitrary unit systems.

This library currently comes with just SI units, but you can easily make your own by editing or importing unitsmaker.py. It has no tutorial yet, but it should be easy enough to emulate (just look at main()). Note: it does save a file to your computer and does zero sanity checking, so run it at your own risk.

To build,

cargo build

Here is an example of its use:

(excerpt of examples/vec.rs)

fn main() {
    let start: Dim<Meter, Vector2d> = Dim(Vector2d{x: -13.0, y: 33.0});
    let end: Dim<Meter, Vector2d> = Dim(Vector2d{x: 26.0, y: -19.0});
    let displace = end - start;
    let time = s*26.0;
    let vel = displace/time;
    // Dim has Deref, but doesn't know about norm(), so vel.norm() returns f64 *not*
    // Dim<Meter, f64>, which is what we desire. This is the use for vel.wrap()---it
    // "wraps" the argument in the same dimensions as vel. We could avoid using wrap()
    // by putting norm() in a trait and implementing it for Dim.
    let speed = vel.wrap(vel.norm());
A physicist was standing at {}.
Then she walked to {}, for a displacement of {}.
The walk took her {}, so she must have had a velocity of {}.
That's a speed of {}!", start, end, displace, time, vel, speed);

with output:

A physicist was standing at (-13, 33) m.
Then she walked to (26, -19) m, for a displacement of (39, -52) m.
The walk took her 26 s, so she must have had a velocity of (1.5, -2) ms^-1.
That's a speed of 2.5 ms^-1!

Run the example with

cargo run --example vec
