Please pardon the unneccessary precision, but back from my days
as an optics engineer, when such precision mattered:

 1 m	=	39.37007800 in
 1 cm	=	 0.39370078 in
25 cm	=	 9.84251950 in

1 ft	=	12.00000000 in
1 ft	=	30.48000057 cm

languages cause we're too stuck on ourselves, doesn't mean
we can't do some simple arithmetic"   ;-)
