 # This  Python block returns with the brightness sensor value in the heap
 # a range of parameters can be measured, for example, substitute any of
 these strings
 # for the string in the program below
 # /sys/devices/platform/olpc-battery.0/power_supply/olpc-
 # /sys/devices/platform/olpc-battery.0/power_supply/olpc-
 # /sys/devices/platform/dcon/backlight/dcon-bl/actual_brightness

 def myblock(tw, x):
 # ignores second argument
     fh  = open('/sys/devices/platform/olpc-ols.0/power_state')  #the light
     string = fh.read()
 #append reading to heap

 # if you can work out how to use them:
 # accelerometer is /dev/input/event0, power button is /dev/input/event1,
 # lid switch is /dev/input/event2, ebook /dev/input/event3, headphone jack
 # /dev/input/event7, microphone jack /dev/input/event8 (doesn't ?),
 # rotate, cursor, and game pad keys
 # /dev/input/event10.
