CPU temperature and hardware sensor readouts in bash
Authored by: iamdw on Oct 25, '05 10:22:22PM
Wonderful script 31d1, and after reading through the Ask Metafilter thread I see your confusion, though i don't completely understand it as i'm an even fresher n00b than you. Anywhen, my math skill are rather weak, and i was wondering if a Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion is a simple switch of the "
$(i+1)=((( (($(i+1) / 2^13) - ($(i+1) / 2^13) % 1 ) / 2^3) - .5)" Ct")
" formula or something more complext in translating the output from hex etc? If it is, don't worry about it... get the accuracy confusion out of the way first. That said, us Fahrenheit users would love an °F output. Anyone up for the challenge? I've dicking around with it bout as i said, my math is weak...
