7 I'm building a bit more of interface which handles button presses and such
8 (forgot your root password?). The framework is built using Perl, but the actual
9 calls to set LCD text and query button status are handled via some hacked up
10 code I found on Sun's Cobalt dev FTP. I've created an ebuild for it; whether or
11 not the ebuild was done well is not important at this point, just need something
12 that works.
14 If anything wants lower level access, well, have fun :-) The point here is to
15 make something that is easily extensible. I don't want to write something that
16 requires someone to know C, or heaven forbid Python, to extend. You know what I
17 mean?
