**Usage:**
At first type your body height into the field, behind which you find the corresponding unit.
After the next mouse click the height will be converted into the other length units.
After typing your body weight into the field in front of the corresponding unit,
a click on the "calculate" button or any free space of the window leads to the
calculation of the weight in the other units and of the body-mass-index.

After the input of the body height you may also type the wanted value for the BMI and
calculate the needed body weight.

Type the "reset" button to reset your calculation. After a change of the input for
the body height, the values for the weight and the BMI automatically are deleted.
Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.

**Example:** You have a height of 1.76 m and a weight of 80 kg. At first type

in front of "kg". Click on the "calculate" button or any empty space of the
window. Read the BMI (25.826).
