Basically I believe I have a single 7-segment display wired up properly thanks to some help from CrossRoads, but I'm a bit at a loss with what to do with the the programming part of it.
I have this 7-segment display:http://www.us.kingbright.com/images/catalog/SPEC/SA18-11EWA.pdf
and I used this shift register:http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/IC/TPIC6B595.pdf
My eventual plan is to have 2 displays of 4 digits each. I don't need any counting or clock code. I just need to display numbers.
I may need help displaying numbers as they are being entered into a keypad, but I'm not sure at this point.
