Convert feet to feet and inches

Hello,

if the result is in feet, Is there a direct and simple way or a function to convert it to feet and inches?

For example L=6.33 feet          L=6'-4"

 

Thanks,

Sam

Unfortunately Prime does not offer this way to display a length.

You would have to write and use a custom function to display it similar to the desired look.

Here is a simple (and limited) function which returns a string to display the desired result

For a different and more comprehensive approach on this you may have a look at the work of Fred Lusk

Forgot to mention that Prime offers a unit (!!?) FIF

Its a bit buggy that FIF used as a unit can also be applied to a dimensionless number (which then is interpreted as a length in meter!!)
