Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2011 12:20 PM (in response to Baumkartoffel)Yes, this is what i am looking for, but you check it with "temp monitor"
I am able to do that with "temperature monitor" :
/Applications/TemperatureMonitor.app/Contents/MacOS/tempmonitor -c -l -a
I would like to know if it's possible to check out the sensor without specific applications, but only using shell's command line's script!MacBook Pro 5.5, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2011 5:47 PM (in response to filippo1982)filippo1982, are you asking whether there is a built-in command in a shell that will provide the temperature, or are you asking whether there is a command-line executable that comes with Mac OS X that will provide the temperature?
If you are asking about a built-in shell command, then the answer is definitely no; none of the shells provide temperature information. If you are asking about a command-line executable that comes with Mac OS X (i.e. a version that is supported on a MacBookPro5,5), then the answer so far also appears to be no, since the ioreg command doesn’t provide temperature information on a MacBookPro5,5.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 13, 2011 7:36 AM (in response to Baumkartoffel)Ok,
that is what i was trying to understand!
So there is not a a built-in shell command to check out the sensores temperrature!

We just released Check My Temp in the Mac App Store which is a simple to use utility to see the temperature values for all the sensors in your Mac as well as the fan RPMs.
Check it out at http://itunes.apple.com/app/check-my-temp/id467830521?mt=12
Give it a try and let us know what you think!

I came across this thread while looking for a CLI temperature monitor, and the last reply solved my problem.
tempmonitor is also not dependent on any of the other resources from that app, so you can copy it out to wherever you want, which is very useful.
FYI, I'm using OS 10.7.3 on an i7 MBA and it reads 11 sensors. Awesome.

Yes, Temperature Gauge (was called Check My Temp) gets the temperature and fan speeds right from the hardware. We're actually working on version 4.0 which will include support for even more sensors and other improvements. If you have any questions about it, please feel free to ask here or email email@example.com.

Really disappointing that a.) there seems to be no "native" way of reading this simple values via command line (at least not openly documented in the Mac Developer Library) and b.) nobody seems to get the thread openers question

a) There is nothing "simple" about IOKit
b) There are numerous, excellent answers in this thread from people who obviously understand this original poster's question
c) This is from 2010
