Summary     : Tool for probing and parsing monitor EDID
Description :
Monitor-edid is a tool for probing and parsing Extended display
identification data (EDID) from monitors.
For more information about EDID, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EDID

Update Information:

Upstream Changelog    Version 2.4    - monitor-parse-edid:    o ignore the
Manufacturer Specified Range Timing descriptor if the first detailed timing
descriptor appears to violate it (this probably means that the descriptor is
actually something else or in a different format; this fixes Lenovo W500
detection, reported by Udo Rader)    Version 2.3    - monitor-get-edid-using-
vbe:    o update x86emu from xserver git (fixes issues at least with newish
NVIDIA cards)    o check if the port supports DDC before trying to read EDID
data (this should prevent problems when probing nonexistent ports on old cards)
- monitor-edid, monitor-get-edid:    o probe ports 0-2 by default instead of
just 0-1 (many NVIDIA cards seem to be using port 2 and the changes in monitor-
get-edid-using-vbe should make it safe for old problematic NVIDIA cards as well)
Version 2.2    - monitor-edid, monitor-get-edid:    o support getting EDID from
kernel DRM when kernel mode-setting is enabled (Anssi Hannula)  - monitor-probe-
using-X:    o use resolution from LVDS initial mode when X reports that it is
exact, making it work with nouveau driver (Anssi Hannula)    Version 2.1    -
monitor-parse-edid:    o compute and display the "dpi" of the preferred
modelines    o handle parsing of EDIDs found in "xrandr --prop" or Xorg.log  -
monitor-get-edid-using-vbe:    o fix checking the current vt    o instead of
checking vt >= 7 to know if X is running, check wether $DISPLAY is set
