Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) and Enhanced EDID (E-EDID) are metadata formats for display devices to describe their capabilities to a video source (e.g. graphics card or set-top box). The data format is defined by a standard published by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).

EDID-decode is a command-line tool that provides a programmatic interface for parsing and interpreting the EDID information stored in computer monitors. EDID is a standardized data format used to convey information about the display's capabilities to the graphics card or other output device. The EDID data includes detailed information such as the display's native resolution, supported video modes, refresh rate, color depth, and other display characteristics.

EDID-decode works by parsing the binary EDID data retrieved from the connected display and presenting the decoded information in a human-readable format. It can be run on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems, and is typically included as part of the xorg-x11-utils package in Linux distributions.

The EDID-decode tool uses a sophisticated algorithm to extract and decode the EDID data, and can provide detailed information about the display's characteristics and capabilities. This information can be used to diagnose and troubleshoot display issues, such as resolution mismatches or incorrect color rendering.

In summary, EDID-decode is a powerful tool for working with EDID data, and is widely used by graphics professionals and enthusiasts for display configuration and troubleshooting purposes.
