Very simple


Sorry, I haven't it in English, but the code is very simple.
The section between ======= and ====== at the beginning, is simply a few examples of known locations that i used to check the code, by activating on of them.
The rest of the code is only some simple mathematics and format conversion to get the result.

I have been looking for a simple program to convert LON/LAT to the 6-digit MH square.

Do you have this in English? Thanks!
