The Pervasive Displays library suite is specifically designed for the Pervasive Displays screens and boards.
It provides a high-level interface to drive the e-paper screens with global, fast and partial update, supports capacitive touch and haptic feed-back. It is developed in C++.

The screen libraries support additional screen-specific features for the Pervasive Displays e-paper screens;
The documentation consists on two documents:
This User guide focuses on how to use the different libraries, with commented examples;
The Reference manual lists all the objects and functions, with details for their parameters and returned results.
Additionally, the Wiki provides a gradual introduction to the e-paper technology and how to use it.
