Arduino and a Character LCD
Arduino works fine with Character LCD (the classic 16 char x 2 lines). It can even use the 4 bits library, to save some pins (you end up needing 6 at minimum). However that library or at least the version I had was old (2006) and had some painful limitations. It's fixed in this version. Feel free to use, GPL free.
If you find it useful, it's good. If I've wasted 1/2 hour on a historical version, that's it for me. Comments welcome.
Edit : LiquidCrystal is much better, should have used it from start ...
An exemple on how to plug it. Count 7 pins for driving it (4 bits data + E + CS + Backlight)
\arduino-0015\hardware\libraries\LCD4Bit directory. That's all. Maybe drop the lib4bit.o and rebuild, in case. Enjoy.
