function Convert-Temperature {
<#
.SYNOPSIS
Convert between different units of temperature.
.DESCRIPTION
This functions lets you convert between different units of temperature. You choose the
unit you want to convert from, and the output will include an object with the value
converted to all supported units. Supported units are 'Celsius', 'Fahrenheit', 'Kelvin',
'Rankine', 'Delisle', 'Newton', 'Réaumur' and 'Rømer'.
.EXAMPLE
Convert-Temperature -Value 35 -From Celsius
