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).

Two tools are provided: 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 (or xrandr-compatible modelines).

pkg-message:
FreeBSD has mapping at zero address feature turned off since 8.0-RC2:

  http://security.freebsd.org/advisories/FreeBSD-EN-09:05.null.asc

This is required to read EDID data via classical VBE interface (to avoid
"mmap /dev/mem: Invalid argument" message from libx86).  To temporarily
disable this protection, issue the following command:

  # sysctl security.bsd.map_at_zero=1

To return to secure state:

  # sysctl security.bsd.map_at_zero=0

a monitor.  It is mostly useful to read LCD matrix manufacturer and model.

WWW: http://www.polypux.org/projects/read-edid/

NB: TIMESTAMP line in distinfo should read as follows, but has to stay in
its current form due to a bug in the hook script:
TIMESTAMP (read-edid-3.0.2.tar.gz) = 1430271430
