Here's a very basic HD44780 driver for Stellaris Launchpad.   Supports up to 20x4 LCD and a full PORTB register is used. Due to the nature of the GPIOPinWrite function which uses masking and whatnot

R/W pin should not be left floating. Tie it to ground (1 = Read, 0 = Write) - the library just writes commands to the LCD module

Thanks a lot ! Problem solved After grounding R/W pin display started to work.     Thanks guys !

#define RS GPIO_PIN_2
#define E GPIO_PIN_3
#define D4 GPIO_PIN_4
#define D5 GPIO_PIN_5
#define D6 GPIO_PIN_6
