Need input - time conversion algorithms/standards/opinions

Post by Al Spo » Sat, 16 Jul 1994 08:52:47

I've decided to write a meters/yards time conversion program for the
Macintosh.  I'm aware that there are probably as many opinions on how
time conversions should be handled as there are lengths of pools.  My
idea is to write a program that will allow you to select a few
'standard' conversion methods (from a menu, perhaps), OR create your
own algorithm/criteria for converting times.  What I need is
information on whatever may exist already in the way of standard
conversion method(s) (if there is such a thing),or even 'commonly
accepted' practices.  I'm sure this has been covered in the group
before, so I apologize in advance - hopefully folks will still be
willing to mail me stuff that may have been posted earlier.  If there's
a FAQ file that might address this issue, please let me know.  Thanks!
