Measurements for OpenOffice.org

"Measurements" is an Openoffice.org Calc add-in I wrote that provides a basic set of spreadsheet functions for manipulating scientific measurements, tracking units of measure and significant figures.  It is available here and on the main OpenOffice.org Extensions site.

To install: The add-in comes in a UNO package named measurements-V.oxt, where V stands for the version.  Download the newest version.  In OpenOffice, go to Tools -> Extension Manager... -> My Extensions -> Add... -> browse for measurements-V.oxt -> Open.  Then restart OpenOffice.org.  (If you are upgrading, remove the old package and restart OpenOffice.org first.)

Here is the UNO package for download.

Note: For the extension to install properly, you must have the file unoil.jar that contains the OpenOffice.org Java interfaces.  In Fedora, this file is in the main OpenOffice.org package; in Ubuntu, it comes in a separate openoffice.org-java-common package.
