Functions

XCM_DDC_ERROR_e XcmDDClist (char ***list, int *count)
obtain all monitors i2c device names
XCM_DDC_ERROR_e XcmDDCgetEDID (const char *device_name, char **data, size_t *size)
obtain all monitors i2c device names
const char * XcmDDCErrorToString (XCM_DDC_ERROR_e error)
convert enum into a meaningful text string

Detailed Description

The purpose of the API is to establish client side communication with a monitor device. This can be used to update EEDID data and get MCCS properties. The former is supported by this library.

XcmDDClist() returns a list of monitor i2c device names. XcmDDCgetEDID() can be used to fetch EEDID from a device name.
