FEZ Panda II - Parallax 27997RT Serial LCD Control Library

This Parallax 27997RT library contains functionality that allows not only display of characters and control of the cursor and backlight, but provides a rudimentary language for creating music using the 27977RT’s piezo speaker. It even attempts to hold the thread while the music plays, to avoid chopping off the sound.

This was written some time ago, so forgive me if it has flaws. It is a good example of UART communication (on COM2), and an example of some threading and queuing of dubious quaility.

The Hello World program simply turns on the backlight, displays a message, and plays a passable version of Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star.
