* @brief Header for ST7565 graphic LCD library.

* @details
* A library for using the ST7565 graphic LCD in serial (software SPI) mode.
* This library is a low-level interface to the screen only. Graphics functions (text, images
* etc) are separate.
* Each screen requires different settings for brightness (the "volume control" and internal
* resistor settings). The initialisation code picks a middle ground, but you may need to
* modify this.
* In serial mode it is not possible to read data back from the screen, meaning we
* need an array to hold the current data. For a 128*64 screen, this will require
* 1KiB of RAM. We need to know what data is currently on the screen so that we can overlay
* new pixels onto it, so must keep a copy in local memory.
* SPI timings have been checked using the MPLAB Simulator, with Vcc of 3.3v it is impossible
* to violate the datasheet guidelines even up to 64Mhz.
* This code has been tested on a PIC 18F26K20 at 64Mhz using the internal PLL. No
* adverse effects were noticed at this speed. You will need the HiTech delay routines
* or an equivalent.
* Example usage (initialisation):
* @code
* // Initialise the screen, turning it on
* glcd_init();
* // Clear the screen's internal memory
* glcd_blank();
* // Set the screen's brightness, if required. See below for information
* // on how this works.
* glcd_contrast(3, 25);
* @endcode
* Example usage (writing to the screen):
* @code
* // Set some pixels in the RAM buffer
* glcd_pixel(1, 1, 1);
* glcd_pixel(2, 1, 1);
* glcd_pixel(1, 2, 1);
* glcd_pixel(2, 2, 1);
* // Clear a pixel in the RAM buffer
* glcd_pixel(64, 64, 0);
* // Copy the RAM buffer to the screen
* glcd_refresh();
* @endcode
* @note This is a low level library only, with support for setting & clearing pixels. For text
* or graphics functions, please see my graphics library.
* This code is released under the BSD license. Please see BSD-LICENSE.TXT for more information.
* @todo Check timings compared to datasheet, supply a max recommended Fosc.
* @todo Handle different sized screens if appropriate, e.g. 128*32 (some code is still
* fixed to certain screen/page sizes).

* Set the contrast of the screen. This involves two steps, setting the
* internal resistor ratio (R1:R2) and then the contrast.
* Tip: Find a resistor ratio that works well with the screen and stick to it
* throughout. Then adjust the contrast dynamically between 0 and 63.
* @param resistor_ratio Ratio of the internal resistors, from 0-7
* @param contrast Contrast, from 0-63
