Yes, you could set up two table entries (say number 4 and 5)
which would toggle to each other after say 50 milliseconds
(and on each toggle you'd protocol the 'is' values).
As the DS2756 has f.e. new current data about every 88ms
you won't miss much:^)
Or you'd read out an 'is' value (which contains U, I, Q, T)
and write it back as both the upper and lower limit.
As time you'd specify f.e. 1 minute so you'll be
notified on each change then (noise included:^) or
if nothing changes you'd have at least one entry per
But I would not use the scheduler...
Instead I'd use the One-Wire-Filesystem (and a bash script
or some smallish program which just does some file IO)
The bash script would open a file (with a name like
"batt_<64bit ID>_20071009T193345.txt" then do an
echo "#Time Voltage Current Charge Temperature" >> FILE
and then periodically have a
date >> FILE
cat 35.000035CA0000/volt >> FILE
cat 35.000035CA0000/temperature >> FILE
You could then feed gnuplot with that file.
Not only to produce diagrams after the complete file has been
acquired but also (with some tee / tail -f tricks)
while the file is being updated...
(Probably I can dig out something in that direction.)
