/* mbed TextDisplay Library Base Class
 * Copyright (c) 2007-2009 sford
 * Released under the MIT License:
 * A common base class for Text displays
 * To port a new display, derive from this class and implement
 * the constructor (setup the display), character (put a character
 * at a location), rows and columns (number of rows/cols) functions.
 * Everything else (locate, printf, putc, cls) will come for free
 * The model is the display will wrap at the right and bottom, so you can
 * keep writing and will always get valid characters. The location is 
 * maintained internally to the class to make this easy
