Dear Stata users

Does anyone know where the RGB values for the standard _colorstyle_ colours may be found?

I am trying to write a graph command that takes a user-specified standard colour, with the output requiring slightly lighter/darker shades of this colour. For example, so I can do this:

if "`color'" == "red"{
local light = "255 50 50"
local dark = "205 0 0"
}

I know how to do red of course, but what about forest_green, cranberry, eggshell...?

Better still, is there a function to get the values directly?

Best wishes,
Ross
