February 21, 2012 in Utility (E)

[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - Ergonis Software today released a universal conversion AppleScript for use with Typinator 5, its highly acclaimed text expander solution. The new conversion script impressively demonstrates the power and flexibility of Typinator's new scripting capabilities.

With this AppleScript installed, Typinator users can convert currencies based on current exchange rates as well as arbitrary other units of measure like mass, length, time, etc., and get the conversion results inserted instantly into the current text. With no programming knowledge required and only one simple conversion snippet (>>>), Typinator users just type an amount and convert that from a source unit to a destination unit:

* "20 USD EUR >>>" yields "15.0840938"
* "120 km miles" >>> yields "74.5645431"
* "90 degrees radians" >>> yields "1.57079633"
* "37 Celsius Fahrenheit" >>> yields "98.6"
* "1 kg lbs" >>> yields "2.20462262"
* "95 kW HP" >>> yields "127.397099"

These are just a few examples. The conversion script comes with various inspiring examples that demonstrate how specialized conversions can be made with just a few keystrokes.

"We are thrilled about the virtually unlimited opportunities opened up by Typinator's new scripting feature. The conversion script impressively demonstrates that," said Christoph Reichenberger, CEO of Ergonis Software. "We invite all Typinator users - with or without programming knowledge - to take advantage of scripting support in Typinator 5. Download the free scripts and make use of them or use them as starting points for your own scripts. And if you have created a script that you want to share with other Typinator users, please let us know. We'll be happy to add it to our Download Extras page.
