Device::MatrixOrbital::GLK
==========================

Device::MatrixOrbital::GLK is an object oriented perl module for controlling 
the GLK serial of LCD screens made by Matrix Orbital.

For more information about GLK series MatrixOrbital displays, please visit:

Please note that I am not an employee and have nothing to do with MatrixOrbital,
other than being a happy customer.
