units is used interactively, numerous command line editing
features are available. To check if your version of

then request completion, you will see something like this:
You have: metr metre metriccup metrichorsepower metrictenth metretes metricfifth metricounce metricton metriccarat metricgrain metricquart metricyarncount You have: metr

beeps, it means that there is no unique completion. Pressing the tab
key a second time will print the list of all completions.
