    upm::GroveLight* light = new upm::GroveLight(0);

    // Read the input and print both the raw value and a rough lux value,
    // waiting one second between readings
    while( 1 ) {
        std::cout << light->name() << " raw value is " << light->raw_value() <<
            ", which is roughly " << light->value() << " lux" << std::endl;

I enjoy solving problems by creating appropriate solutions and not developing a solution and waiting for a problem to solve.
