```In case it's of any help here's a JavaScript fragment to convert lbs to
cwt-qrs-lbs:

function lbsToCwtQrsLbs(wtlbs){
var lbs = wtlbs % 28;            // remainder # lbs after
removing qrs from total
var wtqrs = (wtlbs - lbs)/28;    // total is now 'wtqrs' qrs
plus 'lbs' lbs
var qrs = wtqrs % 4;            // remainder # qrs after
removing cwt from 'wtqrs'
var cwt = (wtqrs - qrs)/4;        // total is now 'cwt'x 112 +
'qrs'x 28 + 'lbs'
if ((lbs==0)&&(qrs==0)){return cwt+'cwt';}
return cwt+'-'+qrs+'-'+lbs;
}
