What unit of measurement is assumed for the fret calculation? + Because the calculation is a mathematical function, there's really no assumed unit of measurement for scale length as far as the API is concerned. For the web application, millimeters are assumed. Because of this, the resulting table has columns for millimeters and inches. 2. Can I save my results after using the calculator? + You can save your results by printing them to paper or PDF, etc. 3. Can I export the results from the calculator into a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel? + Exporting the results is not possible, but you should be able to copy/paste the tabular results directly into a spreadsheet application.
