116 - Metric distance

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
I would like to request an option to change to metric distance.

Please provide any additional information below.
They are almost equal, but one meter is 3.37 inches longer than a yard, and that adds up.

    A mild case of OCD, and as most of Europe and the world, used to the metric system. Thanks for the information, Cladhaire, I appreciate it a lot.

    I guess you could do your alteration on line 237 of TomTom_Waypoints.lua.

    It boggles my mind that you're this invested in this.. O.o

    Changing it to meters was easy, changing "yards" to "meters" in Localization.enUS.lua. Changing yards to meters, you just need to divide yards with 1.0936. I would do it myself, but I have no clue where to do it. :( Pretty please, Cladhaire, can you help me? :)

    I don't understand what you mean.. do you just want it to say 'meters' instead of yards? Or do you want the number to change? Either way its not a one-line change.

    I did not know that. If I wanted to make the change to metric anyway, what would I have to do, if you could please tell me?

    Everything in WoW, regardless of region, in in 'yards'.
