As my first gtk program, I wrote a replacement for xcolorsel, which I
maintain for Debian. I didn't really like the original program and
wanted to get rid of it, but I could find nothing that provided
equivalent functionality. Now that xcolorsel-gtk exists, the original
xcolorsel can be retired, I hope. I fill file a formal ITO soon.
There are still a few rough edges in the GUI, as can be expected from
a novice. Gtk experts in the audience are invited to suggest
improvements. One thing I know about: the text entry control should
get input focus at entry do dialogs. How? The path of the rgb.txt
file should probably be selectable at runtime, rather than compiled
Also, a manpage needs to be written, but that will be quite simple for
this kind of program.
