Hello there,

I was looking for some physical constant (Boltzmann Constant K),
 lately, and thought if we had some inbuilt thing in Octave
(Octave-Forge) like the table from NIST, at
it could be quite useful.

I wonder if anyone has thought about it, and has better ideas
to share.

ATM I have some crude scripts to generate cookie-cutter
scripts-functions that return the value of constants.

You don't want to add a new function for every constant.

How about having a function which can return the desired
constant, or perhaps return a static structure containing
all constants.

Also, you might want to return a vector of exponents on
the seven basic SI units rather than a string.  With it you
can do things such as scale between cgs and mks.
