Install intructions (Debian / Ubuntu)

Usage instructions

Run, you may need to run this as root depending on your udev rules, i.e.

    sudo ./

This will log the temperature every 5 seconds to stdout as a CSV stream which 
you can pipe to a text stream and open in your favourite spreadsheet package 

To allow non-root users access

1. Add the udev rule set in /etc/udev/rules.d/ using the 60-temper.rules 

2. Add a 'temper' group (using groupadd or edit the /etc/group file)

3. Add users to the 'temper' group

4. Reload the udev rules 

    udevcontrol reload_rules

5. Unplug and replug the TEMPer device
