Move Packets from Arduino to HCA

This Perl program runs continuously awaiting incoming packets from the Arduinos, placing them into a file where HCA can read them.  The incoming packets are mostly formatted as HCA flags so no processing is required.  The Arduino with the one-wire thermometers, however, sends in their one-wire addresses and this program changes those to an HCA-friendly format.
