There are sometimes easy conversions that you can do it yourself. But is there a std. C++ conversion class (or classes) that I can use to convert units.

For example if I want to covert Hz to milliseconds whats the best approach? Iike I said I can do the conversion statements myself; but I am looking for an existing C++ class/lib so that I could use that instead of reinventing the wheel.

The Code Project has some libraries for this...

See: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/23087/Measurement-Unit-Conversion-Library

PS: Hz is a unit of INVERSE time!  Thus, it will not convert to ms!
