The type Function in the Standard Units Environment

Description

 • In the Standard Units environment, the global type function is replaced by a type function that converts any unevaluated arithmetic operators, equalities, or inequalities to their global equivalents.  The first argument is tested to check whether it is a valid unit name.
 • For more information about this function, see the global type help page.
 > type(a = 3, 'name=integer');

 > :-type(a = 3, 'name=integer');  # this unexpectedly returns false
 ${\mathrm{false}}$ (2)
 > type(a = 3, 'name=integer');
