Feet & Inch Script

Summary: Do arithmetic using feet/inches

Instructions: This script provides the ability to add feet and inches. Two different number formats are provided. Either type f.iinndd or fii.nndd where f is the number of feet, ii is the number of inches, nn is the numerator, and dd is the denominator. For example, five feet, eight and one-half inches is 5.080102 in the first format and 508.0102 in the second format.

Feet & Inch lets you add two measurements, or find the difference between two measurements, as well as the ability to multiply or divide a measurement by a number.

This version is longer than a standard clipboard can hold. I use cliphack to copy it to RPN.
