A function to assist with getting valid EML unit ids (see examples). Warning: ensure returned unit is equivalent to input unit (for example "pH" will return "picohenry" which may or may not be equivalent to the input unit "pH").

Usage
get_unit_id(input_units, eml_version = emld::eml_version())
Arguments
input_units

(character|vector) input units that needs valid EML unit ids

eml_version

(character) the eml schema version desired (there is a change in the way eml units are named from eml-2.1.1 to eml-2.2.0)
