In this exercise, students build a separately compiled class containing metric conversion methods (simple, but useful).
Using a user-defined, separately compiled module with a program can change translation to a multistep process:
To organize a program which has separate components is the role of the Project or Make file.
We provide "starter" files in the exercise for each of the components in the lab exercise: Driver.java, Metric.java and Metric.doc.
