hi,

I wanted to use some of the system colour names in a recent project,
so wrote a script which "translates" to POV's syntax, creating an
include file that can be used standalone, or included after the
regular 'colors.inc'.  then, in true amateur fashion, I went over
the top and wrote a second script to get a html page to list (and
compare common) colours.

hoping that other Linux users might find this useful, I've attached
an archive containing everything, including a small README.

regards, jr.

I rendered. Very useful work. Now i know the X11 colors. I'll put the
"colours_x11.inc" in some of my pov's path. Thanks you very much.
