    Hey all..

    I just want to suggest that there should be a topic in which we share custom header files to use with our work. Let say for example a header file for 2x16 lcd with HD44780 controller.

    PS:Suggestion specially for moderators

    Header files by themselves are really not very useful. Code libraries with their header files are perhaps a bit more useful. The problem is that for most programmers it takes as long to learn most pieces of code as it does to create them from scratch. Now imagine combing through several hundred thousands of files looking for the ones you want.

    Beginning programmers, on the other hand, could benefit from a repository of well documented and working code.

    So knock yourself out.

    A quick Yahoo search for "hd44780 tutorial" yeilded 52,600 results.

    Is it true that none of the existing tutorials meet your needs?

    This was just an example...their are many other things for which you cannot get many result that suffice your needs.

    Any good microcontroller compiler these days should come with libraries already, for driving all common things.

    The need to make user libraries is going to become less and less over time.
