gLCD

What is gLCD?

gLCD is a program to drive various graphical LCD screens connected to a PC or other type of computer. The program is open-source and released under the GPL, so anyone can modify it. It is built in a modular fashion, so adding new LCDs should be a breeze. It uses the also open-source library LibGD for imaging support. Input is done via scripts which in their turn can read data from e,g, the /proc-dir.

What is supported?

OSes:

(It may compile on other Unices and it most certainly should be portable to Win32, I just haven't tried yet.)

Output:

Download

gLCD 0.1 - Initial version.
gLCD 0.1a - Added lph7653 support.

Documentation

The gLCD doc directory is accessable here.

Support

gLCD comes with NO WARRANTY whatsoever. If you blow something using my program or instructions, your problem. Having said that:
If you have a graphical LCD (no controllerless LCDs please) you want to be supported in gLCD, I may help you. The standard arrangement is: send me 2 lcds + where to find docs on it, and I'll send you back one, fully soldered, for the price of the extra parts needed to connect the LCD to a PC and shipping cost. The next release of gLCD will then include support for your LCD. Please mail me if you want to make use of this arrangenment.
