    This is temperature conversion script, used to convert temperature from Celsius, Fahrenheit, Rankine, and Kelvin.

    The Code



    Include the script in your php project and call one of the conversion functions with a numeric value as its parameter to get some output. You can convert from Celsius, Fahrenheit, Rankine, and Kelvin temperature types. The functions all except 2 parameters the value(int), and round(true). Because if round does not equal true it will not round but if it does equal true it will round the value using the built in round function.

    I've tested the math invloved to make sure the out puts are correct. I did not use the float values because I would have to include ceil and floor options which I felt weren't needed but if you check out this wiki page you can try your hand at the conversions there(I used them as my source) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rankine_scale

    PHP:
    <?php

    $NaN 
    "NaN";

    /* Celsius to and from Fahrenheit conversions */
