lcdmod is a kernel module for using HD44780 compatible LCD displays connected to the parallel port.
Version: 1.0.2lcdmod was written because there was no nice way of controlling these displays from a computer under linux, most other software written to control these displays run in user space, and/or don't support all the features of the displays.
Operating System: Linux
lcdmod allows users to easily intergrate the LCD, in its simplest form, into shell scripts, C code, et cetera by simply writing ASCII to the device file. But also provides an interface to many of the more powerful features of the display and module through that same interface.
