What is this display?
This one is PC2402LRS-ANH-H, more images at google.
It have 14-pin interface: 4 or 8 data pins, 3 control pins, power, ground, brightness adjust pin. In can display up to 255 different characters, graphics for few of them can be set up by programmer, rest are hard-written in ROM.
What can my Character LCD class do?
Class can handle complicated LCD controller protocol / initialization / timing / interface.
It also offer straightforward Hashtable to map symbols you use to ones your LCD have in it's ROM: some displays have Japanese character set, some have Cyrillic etc.
Once lcd is created, display is initialized and ready to work. This code does creeping line.
