Attached is a module colorsysts.py that some may find useful.
This combines and extends a couple of modules that are already available
the functionality includes
the original colorsys module for transforming among color
a named colors function to provide a wide range of color names
a color interpolation module
The last requires some explanation: I've found that mapping real valued
variables onto a color space (say through Hue in a HSL space) is less than
satisfactory -- the color mappings are not linear and the eye doesn't
respond linearly either. The color interpolation function maps continuous
values onto discrete sets of colors (3,4,5,8 or 11 values ) This provides a
much more distinguishable response.
