The convert Function in the Natural Units Environment

Description

 • In the Natural Units environment, the global convert function is replaced by a convert 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 convert help page.
 > with(Units[Natural]):
 > :-convert('m', 'units', 'ft');  # the 'm' is not interpreted as a meter
 > convert('m', 'units', 'ft');
