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...?


--------
program viewcolor
version 8.2
viewsource color-`0'.style
end
---------

viewcolor forest_green
viewcolor cranberry

etc.
