ABSTRACT

  This package provides useful parent types for derived
  dimensional units. That is, it makes it possible to
  do this:
     type Feet is new Integer_Unit;
     type Radians is new Float_Unit;
  Objects of type Feet can be added together, but can't be
  multiplied together to get a result in feet.
 See Dr. Dobb's Journal of Software Tools issue #127
 (May 1987) page 50 for a complete description of how to
 use this package.
