Greetings from the beginning of the Alaska Highway (and a chilly -33C
A program that has been around UN*X for ages, is 'units'. It has many
conversion factors in it, and there are even ways to coax things like
temperature and temperature difference into these conversions.
Looking in a search engine, I see that octave has a way to access the
Gnu units program and data.
That would seem to be the most robust method to me.
There are some measurements that I think units won't work with. The
one that comes to mind is a fracture toughness measurement which
involves square root meters.
It may be that the help within octave for this octave-forge package is
sufficient for you to figure things out. If not, someone will probably
write better instructions than I can.

Can you give an example of what you want and what you do not want?

As you can see in the images, the problem is that the equation plots in ft
and °F. I changed °F to °C by simple conversion of the equation, but I can't
do it with ft. Thats why I'm trying to change it directly in the plot. By the way "z" is vector of depth there, z=(0:Lmax) and changing that to meters doesn't work.
