construct a color data structure
string designating a known color space; "RGB" by default
coordinates of the color in the given color space
color format recognized by ColorTools
The Color procedure is a constructor for a color data structure. This data structure is recognized by most ColorTools commands and many plot commands.
The parameter colorspace can be any of the color spaces listed on the ColorTools/ColorSpaces help page.
Color structures can be indexed as lists. Two structures are considered equal only if their distance (in the CIE76 metric) is less than 10−Digits2.
Colors can be constructed with names
〈RGB : 0.471 0 0.0549〉
〈HSV : 0.981 1 0.471〉
or with coordinates in the specified space
〈RGB : 0.5 0.6 0.6〉
〈HSV : 0.5 0.6 0.6〉
〈XYZ : 0.5 0.6 0.6〉
They can be indexed as lists using either numeric or character indices
G ≔ Color⁡Green
G≔〈RGB : 0 0.502 0〉
G2 ≔ Color⁡Lab,G
G2≔〈Lab : 46.2 -51.7 49.9〉
Two colors can be the same even if they are specified in difference color spaces
The ColorTools[Color] command was introduced in Maple 16.
