LCD Software

So, I am continuing to develop some software for the display.

Here are the priorities:

  1. Develop simple user-space code to access the parallel port functions. - Almost finished.
  2. Develop some simple code for running the HD44780.
  3. Write a small interactive Cocoa application to output data to the LCDs
  4. Write a display plug-in for Growl.
  5. Finally, create a kernel extension for accessing the parallel ports through Apple's IOKit. This may become an open source project, or maybe even part of Darwin.
