Documentation for this module may be created at Module:Convert/extra/doc

-- Extra conversion data used by Module:Convert.
-- [[Module:Convert/data]] defines all units and is transcluded in all pages
-- where [[Module:Convert]] is used. Testing new units by editing that module
-- would invalidate the cache for all affected pages.
-- For quick changes and experiments with new units, this module can be edited.
-- Since this module is transcluded in only a small number of pages, changes
-- should cause little server overhead and should propagate quickly.
-- If a unit is defined in the data module, any definition here is ignored,
-- so defining the same unit in both modules is not an error.
-- A unit defined here can refer to units that are also defined here, and
-- can refer to units defined in the data module.
-- Periodically, those extra units that are wanted permanently can be removed
-- from here after being added to [[Module:Convert/data]].
