mlcd is a kernel module for M50530 lcd-display controllers. It uses the kernel parport API, so it is necessary that
parport and parport_pc modules are loaded.
You can write to your lcd by simply redirecting output to /dev/mlcd.
MLCD was inspired by Michael McLellans lcdmod
We try to keep our module as compatible as possible to lcdmod, so that you can use scripts and xmmslcdmod with minor changes on both kinds of hardware.
