"""Modify the PhysicalQuantities class for more convenient interactive use.
Also redefine some math functions to operate on PhysQties with no need for
special method syntax. This just means moving them out to the global
This module should always be loaded *after* math or Numeric, so it can
overwrite math functions with the versions that handle units.

Basically, the __str__ and __repr__ methods have been swapped for more
convenient interactive use. Powers are shown as ^ instead of ** and only 4
significant figures are shown.
Also adds the following aliases for commonly used methods:
b = PhysicalQuantity.inBaseUnits
u = PhysicalQuantity.inUnitsOf
These are useful when doing a lot of interactive calculations.
# shorthands for the most useful unit conversions
b = PhysicalQuantity.inBaseUnits # so you can just type x.b to get base units
u = PhysicalQuantity.inUnitsOf
# This can be done, but it can get dangerous when coupled with IPython's
# auto-calling. Everything ends up shown in baseunits and things like x*2
# get automatically converted to k(*2), which doesn't work.
