EZ-LCD  Control Module for Character LCD

EZ-LCD is a generic control module for character LCD based on HD44780 or compatibles. It enables to use all character LCD modules without consideration of panel organization and interface type. EZ-LCD is written in ANSI C, so it can be easily ported to most microcontroller.

If you have any comments or know of links I should add, please feel free to email me.
