A dart package providing basic classes for working with measurements such as Length and Mass.

```
import 'package:measurements/measurements.dart';
void main(List<String> arguments) async {
print("Some interesting measurements...");
// Conversions
Length heightOfEverest = Length.fromMetres(8848.0);
print("Height of Everest (in metres): ${heightOfEverest.inMetres}.");
print("Height of Everest (in kilometres): ${heightOfEverest.inKilometres}.");
print("Height of Everest (in yards): ${heightOfEverest.inYards}.");
print("Height of Everest (in miles): ${heightOfEverest.inMiles}.");
// Calculations
Area a = Area.fromAcres(87.0);
Area b = Area.fromAcres(43.0);
print("a + b is ${(a + b).inAcres} acres.");
print("a - b is ${(a - b).inAcres} acres.");
print("a * 4 is ${(a * 4).inAcres} acres.");
print("a / 4 is ${(a / 4).inAcres} acres.");
// Comparisons
Mass elephantWeight = Mass.fromKilograms(5400);
Mass zebraWeight = Mass.fromKilograms(380);
if (elephantWeight == zebraWeight) {
print("An elephant and a Zebra have the same weight.");
} else if (zebraWeight < elephantWeight) {
Mass difference = elephantWeight - zebraWeight;
print("An elephant is ${difference.inPounds} pounds heavier than a zebra.");
} else {
Mass difference = zebraWeight - elephantWeight;
print("A Zebra is ${difference.inPounds} pounds heavier than an elephant.");
}
}
