One week ago Sam Walker asked for a way to format a number to the engineering notation?

After my suggestion I received many mails how to use this function formatEng within plots dealing, e.g., with physics and SI prefixes.

So, I wrote a humble wiki article about that.

If you are interested have a look at strings:formatengineering

Comments are welcome!
