Reading files via http


New member
I have the 631 display and I'm looking for a way (program?) to read a file off the internet and put it's contents onto one line on my lcd.

I'm going to use this so my lcd can display messages from my web server. I can create the php code to write the file, but I don't know a program that will read a single line .txt file from the internet and put it on the LCD. That and I don't have the time to write any programs for this.

Anybody know of a program that can do this?
Looking for additional LCD resources? Check out our LCD blog for the latest developments in LCD technology.

What kind of display are you using?
What's the length of the data you want to display?

I might be able to write an application that does what you want. PM me if you're interested.
