This class is a helper class for TableMeasDescBase to know the type of measure it is dealing with.
It eases the process of converting reference codes to their strings and vice-versa. It also writes the measure type to a record to assist in making table measure definitions persistent.


Create the object for an epoch measure. TableMeasType mtype (MEpoch()); Get the code for the given string. uInt code = mtype.refCode ("UTC");


Creating the required keyword for the definition of a Measure in a Table is somewhat complicated. This class assists in that process.
