Post CPU usage from /proc/stat


Hi to all,
I am using FC4. I am trying to get the CPU usage from /proc/stat file.
But, when i open that file it shows me something like this:

Code:
cpu  106700 2292 18844 1751815 112658 2865 0 0
cpu0 106700 2292 18844 1751815 112658 2865 0 0
intr 23031711 19954800 36850 0 1 1 0 1 4 1 1353 64792 4 2711756 0 88272 173876
ctxt 6934764
btime 1169615882
processes 7442
procs_running 1
procs_blocked 0
Can anyone tell me how to know CPU usage from this information.
I know that there are several other ways to do it but I want to do it using this file only.

Any help ?

Thanks in advance.
