readme.txt file for Arduino glcd library
INSTALL
This library should be unziped into a folder named glcd in the libraries
directory. If you already have a folder called libraries in your Arduino
sketchbook directory, unzip the glcd files there. If not, create a
folder called libraries in the sketchbook folder, and drop the library
folder here.
Then re-start the Arduino programming environment, and you should see the glcd
library in the Sketch > Import LIbrary menu.
DOCUMENTATION
The documentation can be found in the doc directory. There is an
overview document named GLCD_Documentation.pdf and detailed reference
material in GLCDref.htm.
CONFIG
Configuration files for defining pins and panel charactoristics are in the
config folder. The library is capable of auto-configuring when using a
standard processor and panel with the suggested wiring.
If you need to modify the configuration see the documentation for details
on how to do this.
EXAMPLES
The example sketches are in the examples folder and can be accessed from
the IDE menu by selecting File > Examples > glcd
GLCDdemo provides a good introduction to the functionality of the library.
GLCDdiags is a test sketch to help get things up and running and provides
diagnostic information that can help with troubleshooting.
Other example sketches are provided that show how to use various capabilities
of the library.
FONTS
The library is supplied with fixed and variable width font definitons
located in the fonts folder. See the documentation for information on adding
your own fonts to this folder.
BITMAPS
Bitmap images are stored in the bitmaps folder. The documentation
describes how to create you own bitmaps using a utility provided in the
bitmaps\glcdMakeBitmaps folder
OTHER FOLDERS
The include and device folders contain low level system files.
These do not need to be modifed for normal operation.
LICENCE
The Arduino GLCD library files are either licensed under the terms of the
GNU Lesser General Public License or are compatible with this license when
the GLCD library code is used in the Arduino software environment.
See licence.txt for details.
The glcd library was created by Michael Margolis. Extensive enhancements
including the majority of the improvements in this release were led
by Bill Perry.
