Normal place to look would be the displays data sheet from the manufacturer.
Failing that, write a client that just sends each character code to the
display, prehaps prefixed with that code. Be warned that unexpected things
may happen, <tab>, <lf>, <cr> etc... Also it's probably not wise to send the
<esc> character as that may put the display into command mode rather than
display. Forgive me if we are talking a purely graphical display rather than
one with a "text" mode, I've only half been following the thread.
