Have you looked at the Cocoa tutorial on using Python on MacOS?
It is just such a convertor(for currency). Using that as a template it
should be easy to modify it to use different units.

Its best if you give us examples. If you don't know why then ask here.

You may find the Cocoa tutorial too deep if you are that new and
a simple text based solution might be more appropriate. But the
actual coding in the Cocoa app is very little and it does look a
lot better! :-).
