The serdisplib-ruby project provides a simple Ruby Gem to interface with the serdisplib ANSI C library.
The serdisplib library is a library that is used to drive serial, parallel and USB LCD displays with built-in controllers.
The provided interface is currently a simple wrapper around the serdisplib library containing little or no Ruby-isms or helper classes or functions. The aim is to aid LCD application developers in writing or prototyping LCD applications quickly by creating a set of functions and classes that allow applications to make full use of the LCD.
The Ruby wrapper and Gem is distributed under the GNU GPL v2.
- Ruby 1.8.6 or greater (untested with other versions).
- Supported LCD display hardware connected via RS232, parallel or USB.
- serdisplib library binary if using Gem.
- serdisplib library source if compiling.
Files are available to download from the Project Files Page.
To install from a released Gem issue the following command:
`gem install serdisplib-ruby`. To install from
source see the compile instructions.
