  1. The LCD->Pi wiring diagram has an error, the sire from the LCD RS line (4) is going to the Pi connector pin 17 (3.3 v power), it should be going to ping 15 (GPIO3).

  2. Thanks for your post. i have compiled the first code successfully but nothing was shown on the LCD . i used gcc -o lcd lcd.c -lwiringPi -lwiringPiDev to compile the code

    pi@raspberrypi ~/wiringPi-f18c8f7/examples $ gcc -o lcd lcd1.c -lwiringPi -lwiringPiDev
    pi@raspberrypi ~/wiringPi-f18c8f7/examples $

    please help
    thanks in advance
