Raspberry PI and DHT11

I have just set the dht11 temperature and humidity module up to work with the Raspberry Pi.

Having found some instructions here.  As usual it was pretty simple to connect everything together.

I am looking at perhaps trying to record the data from the module in to a file.  But perhaps use Python as the example code is in c.  Wiring pi library can then be used too.

I will update this post or add a new post as I discover more.

Further to the above I found some more info at

The stack exchange link also suggests running :-
