About the beer, it's pretty close.
1-wire devices are devices like termometers, AD-converters and other 
devices that can be accessed over 1-wire (actually two : gnd).
And I would like to use these thermometer-devices with my Zaurus PDA to 
measure tempratures of my brewing sessions : I make my own beer. I still 
have to fetch it myself though ;-).
I'm going to try your unit, but how did you do this ? You must have 
worked for hours to make that "header" file. Thank you very, very much !
