    Default Listing of Darrel Taylor works

    I'm currently using DT_INT and it works well. I see on the forum where there's a DT_ANALOG. Where can I find a list of all the time saving programs that Darrel puts out? I'd rather find out what's there before I spend time making my code work. If this has been answered before I apologize for wasting your time.

    Good day Darrel,

    I2C LCD are now popular since they allow to save pins on the PIC; Those displays are very cheap and they are also used in Arduino enviroment.
    I recently have the need to use them since I do not have available spare pins on my PIC board. I am using PIC 18f4523 and the PBP 2.50 B .
    I used since many years, the PBP and I found LCDOUT very simple to use and I never had problems at all.
    My question and probably the question of many other PBP user is: How to use the I2C LCD based on the PCF8574T in a simple way similar to the LCDOUT ?
    Is there any help ?
    Thanks
    Regards,

    Kent,
    Thanks for the response.
    I do not have the PBP 3.X and so I do not have the ARRAYBYTEwrite on my PBP.
    Any additional suggestion ?
    Regards,
    Ambrogio

    Check PBP 3.0 manual 2.6.4.

    ARRAYREAD and ARRAYWRITE is a simplified FOR loop.

    Thanks Robert,
    Could You please explain to me how to pass from LCDOUT to I2C lcd control in a simple way ?
    I think it is a common problem to all PBP users : The I2C lcd are now very cheap and allow to save Pic pins !
    This will help a lot of people.

    Just read the PBP section in the manual about ARRAY commands that I mentionned and edit Darrel's routine.

    Not much else I can do without getting a LCD for Christmas.

    I have done as you said and it looks like an interesting project to me.

    'Easy' made me think of something I was told years ago "Anything you understand IS easy but until you do understand it is hard". I know that I am not alone in getting a reward solving hard problems and once the adrenaline rush has gone thinking but its easy.

    Richard has already helped me understanding how the I2C command works based on that I think I understand the LCDOUT command, or at least I hope. I am continuing the reading while Ambrogio is waiting for an ArduinoLCD to arrive.

    I am thinking of putting one on my Christmas list It would only be a toy as I have no real use for one. I was thinking of justifying the expenditure by calling it an executive toy.

    I am still waiting for the LCD to arrive here in Italy !

    Let me pose my question in a different and practical mode:
    Now I have the following pbp code:

    Pv var word
    pv= 10000
    LCDOUT $fe,$80," pv=", dec pv

    What will be the "equivalent " pbp code for writing the same things on an I2C LCD ?

    Thanks to everybody for the assistance.
    Regards,
    Ambrogio
