Box Set

In Python for now, eventually in VBA, I’m trying to come up with a way to test whether or not a particular quantity is appropriately specified with valid units and tolerances. It turns out to be slightly simpler to be (semi-)lenient than extremely strict, so here’s what I have so far:

This will handle quantities with symmetric and asymmetric tolerances are specified, as well as inequalities with units. It doesn’t enforce asymmetric tolerances (the numbers could, theoretically, be the same), and the separators are lazy for now.

The goal is actually to highlight non-conforming quantities so that they can be corrected. I suspect that will be more than a minor challenge.
