COLORPT (Color Point Program)

Release date: 
Wednesday, 28 July, 1993



COLORPT is an OS/2 Presentation Manager program that continually reports the color value and English name of the pel (pixel) that happens to be under your OS/2 PM mouse pointer. The color value can be displayed in several different color models, including RGB (red, green, blue) values, CMY (cyan, magenta, yellow) values, and HSV (hue, saturation, value or brightness) values.

COLORPT is especially targetted to users of laptop and notebook PCs with grayscale LCD displays. Editing OS/2 or Windows program icons, drawing charts, obeying program instructions to "Press the red button", and so forth on such systems is often difficult due to the user's inability to discern colors on the gray display. COLORPT was written in an effort to make these tasks easier.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.
