Software for optrex DMF50151AA LC-Display for Linux

Display type: DMF50151AA LC-Display with Toshiba T6369 Displaycontroller

image

How to use this software?

1. Connect your Optrex Display to LPT1 as shown in your Optrex manual.
2. Copy the optrex binary to /sbin/ (Note, you can use this program only as root)
3. Just use pipes to forward character streams of command-line-based programs to you display.

Example:
linux> echo Hello World! | optrex


An example to this picture above:
linux> df -h | awk '{print $1, $4}' | optrex



But use this program with care. You should know, what you're doing.
This is a dangerous piece of code using low-level access to the memory. No guaranty for anything!
