# CSCI 242 Homework 10

## Purpose

Master regular expressions.

## Due dates

This assignment must be completed
by 11:00 PM on
Wednesday, 18 April, but I expect most of it to be done in
class on 12 and 17 April.

## The task

Use regular expressions to write a small application that translates
metric prefixed numbers to ordinary number.

You can work on the details, but the main idea is that someone
enters a number similar to `242 k` in a form
and your application parses it according to the
SI prefixes
and displays the ordinary number, such as `242000`.

Because we all like binary, your application should also deal with the
SI binary prefixes.

Be sure that your applications properly validates its input while
being forgiven on unneeded white space.
