read-edid: Read and parse monitor EDID.1

Package available in: [trunk]

read-edid is a pair of tools (originally by John Fremlin) for reading the EDID from a monitor. It should work with most monitors made since 1996, assuming the video card supports the standard read commands (most do). read-edid is a set of two tools - get-edid, which gets the raw edid information from the monitor, and parse-edid, which turns the raw binary information into a xorg.conf-compatible monitor section (Modelines also compatible with xrandr).
