Arduino library for DS3232 RTC

About

Freetronics sells a RTC module based on the RC3232 "Extremely Accurate I2C-Integrated" RTC module. See http://www.maxim-ic.com/datasheet/index.mvp/id/4984

This IC attempts to compensate for crystal inaccuracies due to temperature change and monitors ambient to control accurate time keeping. As such, it also features a Thermometer with a 0'C to 70'C range (though the temprature read is the internal IC temprature, but a good indicator of ambient).

The RC3232 is very similar to the RC3231 (used by Adafruits' "ChronoDot" RTC module; http://www.adafruit.com/products/255), but adds 2 programable Alarms and 263 bytes of read/write SRAM. (Note the SRAM is not FLASH or EEPROM, as data will be lost when the battery-backup is removed. The plus side is that it has a higher write count.)

Freetronics officially supports the excellent RTC library from Rhys Weather, but I found that Audrino's official Time.h library has a wider adoption, more integrated libraries (including the Timezone.h from Jack Christensen) and is based on C++ ctime library, so is more portable. This library aims to replicate the effort, but make it Time.h friendly.
