Parse::EDID - Extended display identification data (EDID) parser


This module provides some function to parse Extended Display Identification Data binary data structures.

Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) is a metadata format for display devices to describe their capabilities to a video source. The data format is defined by a standard published by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).



Parse the raw binary edid data, as a string, and return a corresponding data structure, as an hashref.


Check the data structure, and return an error message if anything is wrong, an empty string otherwise.


Extract raw binary edid data from another tool text output, such as xrandr --prop.
