    your help is greatly appreciated.
    Code:
    #include <reg52.h>
    #include <intrins.h>    
    
    typedef unsigned char bit_8;
    
    #define CLR 0
    #define SETB 1
    
    sbit DB0 = P1^0;
    sbit DB1 = P1^1;
    sbit DB2 = P1^2;
    sbit DB3 = P1^3;
    sbit DB4 = P1^4;
    sbit DB5 = P1^5;
    sbit DB6 = P1^6;
    sbit DB7 = P1^7;
    sbit EN = P3^7;
    sbit RS = P3^6;
    sbit RW = P3^5;
    sbit DATA = P1;
    sbit D7=P1^7;
    bit_8 code *days[]={"*Sun*","*Mon*","*Tue*","*Wed*","*Thu*","*Fri*","*Sat*"};		
    
    bit_8 code *val[]={"0","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","11","12"};			
    bit flag;
    
    bit_8 month=1,date=1,hh,lmin,hmin,hsec,lsec,day=0,lyear=5,hyear=0,date_count;
    
    sbit Ready = P3^7;
    
    
    
    void ini(void);
    void command(bit_8);
    void data_in(bit_8*);
    void busy(void);
    
    
    
    void main()
    {
    	bit_8 temp;
    	ini();
    	data_in("i love u");
    }
    
    
    
    void ini()
    {	
    	command(56);
    	command(12);
    	command(1);
    	command(6);
    }
    
    
    void busy()
    {
    	D7=1;
    	RS=0;
    	RW=1;
    	while(D7!=0)
    	{
    		EN=0;
    		EN=1;
    	}
    }
    
    
    
    void command(bit_8 val)
    {
    	busy();
    	P1=val;
    	RS=0;
    	RW=0;
    	EN=1;
    	EN=0;
    }
    
    
    
    void data_in(bit_8 *string)
    {
    	bit_8 i;
    	busy();
    	for(i=0;string[i]!='\0';i++)
    		{
    			P1=string[i];
    			RS=1;
    			RW=0;
    			EN=1;
    			EN=0;
    		}
    }
