Default How do I get the remaining battery percentage (6.2)

I used to be able to get the battery percentage in 6.0/6.1 using,
Code:
battatm=$(sysctl -n hw.sensors.acpibat0.amphour3 | sed s/.A.*//)
battfull=$(sysctl -n hw.sensors.acpibat0.amphour0 | sed s/.A.*//)
load=`echo "${battatm} / ${battfull} * 100" | bc`
echo ${load}
but it isn't working on 6.2, & I noticed amphour seems to be watthour now, but even changing that didn't work, something appears to have changed(?).

You can get all the information from the 'apm' command. man apm for commandline arguments.

Thanks, I'll check that out.

Edit: Looks like apm -l will give me what I want, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
