 German translation:1000 Laufmeter Explanation:***--------------------------------------------------Note added at 9 Stunden (2007-03-23 08:56:19 GMT)--------------------------------------------------Natürlich 100 Laufmeter: Habe zudem gefunden: "Linear feet (often called Lineal feet) are the same as regular feet. No conversion is necessary. If something is 6 linear feet tall, it is 6 feet tall. Another good example would be boards, wire fencing, and rolls of cloth, all of which are often sold in linear feet. That just means they are not taking the width into account. If you bought 100 linear feet of lumber, laying them down end to end would stretch for 100 feet, it wouldn't matter how wide the boards were. If you were to multiply the width of the board, or the width of the roll of cloth, times the linear length, you would get the area. The same applies for linear yards, **linear meters**, etc."
