Read-edid is a pair of tools for reading the EDID from a
monitor. It should work with most monitors made since 1996
(except for newer ones with 256-byte EDID's - WiP), 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 an
XF86Config-compatible monitor section.
Notice that the get-edid tool is only available on x86.
