Color Representation inside PEAR Packages

Color Representation inside PEAR Packages

In case a package has to deal with colors, it is recommended that developers store and use an array representation of the color values in their PEAR packages. All values are in the range of 0..255.

Conversion to/between the color-representations

The PEAR-package Image_Color will (hopefully soon) contain all needed functions to convert arbitrary color formats to the internal RGBA representation and convert different color representations.

Status: Currently Image_Color already offers functions to convert color-names (e.g. "green") and hex-representations-strings (e.g. "#339900") to the PEAR-RGBA-format. We are working to get alpha- channel support added hopefully soon and will later add funtions for CYMK-conversion as well.
