Pin allocations on 4 digit, 7 segment LED display... Answered

Hi,
I have recently bought a 4 digit, 7 segment LED display to hook up to my arduino and am unsure of what pin does what. I have a green KINGBRIGHT (2009-34) CA56-216WA (M3) and can not find it on the kingbright website. Also, while I was looking at the other models I noticed that some pins were labeled DP. If anyone can be of any assistance it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again! 
Ari

. PS: Not sure if I understood the last part of the question, but "DP" = decimal point

. PPS: According to the data sheet at the earlier link, DP5 and DP6 are the colon between the 2nd and 3rd digits. I don't see any numeric decimal points on the data sheet.
