R package for converting between basic metric units and imperial units

# conversionr

This is an R package to convert between volume, mass, temperature, and distance units. The package covers converting between basic units of the forementioned categories, and also covers conversions between metric units.

### Installation

Currently, the package is only available from this GitHub repo, and is not in the CRAN database yet. To install this package and its contents, open up an R console and run this line:

```devtools::install_github('alexnakagawa/conversionr')```

### Usage of Conversionr functions

It's very simple to convert units using the `conversionr` package.
You can easily convert units like temperature, volume, mass, and distance using the functions `conv_temp`, `conv_volume`, `conv_mass`, and `conv_dist` for the most common units. You can also convert in between milli, centi, base, and kilo for the metric system using `conv_metric`. Check the examples below:

If you want to convert 100 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius run the function this way:

`conv_temp(100, "f", "celsius")`

For volume conversions, the logic is pretty much the same:

`conv_vol(25, "pint", "qt")`

The same format follows for mass, and distance:

`conv_dist(4,'feet','m')`

To convert in between values of the metric system you can do it like so:

`conv_metric(5,"milli","kilo")`
