Are permissions the reason you suggest running it under cron? Otherwise, why not just regenerate in precmd()?

now i remember why i'm running under cron, instead of in precmd... http://smasher.org/tmp/zsh-bsd-sysctl-slow.png

freebsd's sysctl is way too slow to invoke every time i draw a prompt. linux's /sys/ and /proc/ are reasonably fast, but i already had a cron job written for bsd, and very minor changes were needed to make it work with linux.

it was just pointed out on freebsd-hackers list that this may not be a freebsd v linux issue... it may be the hardware. eventually i'll have to reboot this freebsd laptop, and when i do i'll check it out with an ubuntu CD. if that also runs slow, then the battery script will have to stay separate from the zshrc... unless some other changes are made...?
