Parse::EDID - Extended display identification data (EDID) parser
This module provides some function to parse Extended Display Identification
Data binary data structures.
Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) is a metadata format for
display devices to describe their capabilities to a video source. The
data format is defined by a standard published by the Video Electronics
Standards Association (VESA).
Parse the raw binary edid data, as a string, and return a corresponding data
structure, as an hashref.
Check the data structure, and return an error message if anything is wrong, an
empty string otherwise.
Extract raw binary edid data from another tool text output, such as xrandr
