    Here’s a perl script I made for use on the Raspberry Pi using the Adafruit Occidentalis OS.

    Run this script as root or sudo to output the current temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit:

    #Grab the data from the device (Addr0 pin tied to ground gets 0x48 address)
    $rawhex = `i2cget -y 0 0x48 0x00 w`;
    #Switch the position of the two bytes and convert to integer
    $decimal = oct("0x" . substr($rawhex,4,2) . substr($rawhex,2,2));
    #Shift right four bits (12 bit mode)
    $decimal = $decimal >> 4;
    $celsius = $decimal * 0.0625;
    $f = (9.0/5.0) * $celsius + 32;
    print "C: $celsius, F: $f\n";
