Projects / lcdmod


lcdmod is a kernel module for using HD44780 compatible LCD displays connected to the parallel port. The driver is based on a vt52 display, so output from commands can simply be echoed to the device file. It uses fast 8 bit mode, and supports user defined fonts and multiple wiring schemes.
