Here's something that may not be very useful, but I did anyway in support of another project...
But, if you want to develop Prop code for a 2x16 LCD but don't have one for some reason?
Anyway, I modified the attached LCD driver to also send the data out on serial port.
The Windows Program (I'll try to attach) takes the data and shows virtual LCD.
It's not 100%, but does do everything this demo does.
Program just squeezed under the 2M upload limit ! :)
