Description

msq2ftsq converts square measures such as acre or are given in one metric

Unit   Explanation
---------------------------------------------------------------
msq    square meter
a      are; ar
ha     hectar
kmsq   square kilometer
ftsq   square feet
ydsq   square yard
acre   acre
misq   square mile
---------------------------------------------------------------

msq2ftsq converts the numbers given by the user into all the square
measures mentiond above. If no unit is given, square meter is implied.
The metric unit of the number can be specified with the number, or with
option unit(), or both.

Options

unit(unit) is used to specify the metric unit of the numbers provided. As
unit, any of msq, a, h, ftsq, ydsq, acre, and misq are allowed. Note
that the metric unit can be also appended directly to the numbers.
However, if more than one number is specified, option unit() might be
easier to use. Note also that any metric unit specified for one
specific number overwrites the unit-option for that number.
