00004  *
00005  * A common base class for Text displays
00006  * To port a new display, derive from this class and implement
00007  * the constructor (setup the display), character (put a character
00008  * at a location), rows and columns (number of rows/cols) functions.
00009  * Everything else (locate, printf, putc, cls) will come for free
00010  *
00011  * The model is the display will wrap at the right and bottom, so you can
00012  * keep writing and will always get valid characters. The location is 
00013  * maintained internally to the class to make this easy
