I've spent two (three?) elephanting days trying to write code to communicate with a TFT display over an 8 bit parallel bus and have gotten absolutely nowhere.

I even have a reference implementation someone else wrote that works that I've been following.
I went as far as to log every time a pin went high and low, and compared the output of theirs with mine, and am not seeing any significant differences.

I'm completely flummoxed. This is some nonsense. I rarely have this much difficulty with code.

The problem is there's no decent debugger, so everything has to be logged, but it's time sensitive too (i think). Then there's the fact that I have a layer to do the 8-bit bus I/O (software bit banging the pins on and off) and then built on top of that are the actual display drivers, and the trouble is there's just a lot of complicated code that all has to work right before you get *anything* to show up on the display.

I'm just airing this because sometimes putting a problem out in the world makes a solution come to me.
