The Main Window
(1) The Color Windows:
These ten windows display the "official" names of the rgb.txt
colors while showing the corresponding color in the background. You can click
on any of these windows to bring up the
Color Editor with this color.
(2) The RGB Windows:
These ten windows display the RGB (Red-Green-Blue) values for the color
in the Color Window directly to its left. The values are given from
red to blue, left to right. The color of the number displayed corresponds
directly to the red, green, or blue portion of the color in the Color Window.
(3) The Scrolling Buttons:
These buttons allow you to scroll through the list of available colors in the
rgb.txt file. The double arrows at the top and the bottom of this
column will take you to the beginning or the end of the color list. The
other buttons will move you up (the top 4 buttons) or down (the bottom 4
buttons) a specific number of colors. The bigger the arrow, the longer
it jumps. The values of these jumps are as follows:
Smallest arrow: 1 position.
These values should give you more than enough flexibility to successfully
navigate the color list. These buttons do not repeat when held down because
the massive amounts of thrashing and such that would occur on most systems
would make repeat scroll effectively useless.
Small arrow: 10 positions.
Large arrow: 50 positions.
Largest arrow: 100 positions.
(4) The Control Buttons
These 6 buttons are used to get help, mail comments, change your
cursor, reload the colors, and quit. They are as follows:
The Quit button:
Used to quit the program, by golly!.
The Reload button:

The Color Editor button:

The Help button:

The About button:

The Cursor button:
Switches your pointer between an arrow and a cow. A cow!?!
Well sure, why not? :-)
(5) The Color Counter
This window tells you how many colors are defined in your rgb.txt
file. It also serves as a counter when the colors are being loaded or
(6) The Position Window
This window displays your position in the file as a percentage (of colors
at and above your current position) from 0-100.
