This document outlines the C functionality within the XS file that the Perl
module uses as its backend. It is a reference only, and none of the information
included here is required for non-developmental use/work.


=head2 EnvData

Stores the temperature and humidity float values.

    typedef struct env_data {
        int temp;
        int humidity;
    } EnvData;


C<pin> arguments must always be in their C<BCM GPIO> number scheme format.

=head2 c_temp

    int c_temp(int pin);

Called by the C<temp()> method. Returns the temperature in Celcius.

=head2 c_humidity

    int c_humidity(int pin);

Called by the C<humidity()> method. Returns the humidity as an integer.

=head2 c_cleanup

    int c_cleanup(int pin);

Called by the C<cleanup()> method, and is always called upon C<DESTROY()>.

=head2 read_env()

    EnvData read_env(int pin);

Not available to Perl.

Polls the pin in a loop until valid data is fetched, then  returns an C<EnvData>
struct containing the temp and humidity float values.

If for any reason the poll of the DHT11 sensor fails (eg: the CRC is incorrect
for either temp or humidity), we will loop and block until valid data is

=head2 noboard_test()

    bool noboard_test();

Checks whether the C<RDE_NOBOARD_TEST> environment variable is set to a true
value. Returns true if so, and false if not. This bool is used for testing
purposes only.

Not available to Perl.

=head2 setup()

    void setup();

If we're on a system that isn't a Raspberry Pi, things break. We call this in
C<new()>, and if setup checks fail, we exit (unless in RDE_NOBOARD_TEST
environment variable is set to true).

This function has been configured to call C<wiringPi>'s C<wiringPiSetupGpio()>

Called only from the C<new()> method.
