Hey Matt,

Step one: grab the manual. Step two: browse our appnote section. Step three: ...profit?

Commands useful for your application may include Set Cursor Position, and possibly Custom Characters; consult the font table first to see if there are any suitable characters built-in. Obviously, we can't write the code for your project, but if you have any questions regarding display functionality don't hesitate to post.

Hi Matt,

I'd recommend following the appnotes, looks like SEROUT 1, 240, ["HELLO WORLD"] is documented. As for the strange character, you could identify its' value using the font table for your display (Parallel MOP-AL202C).
