pdfcolmk v2.0 This package has been obsolete and has done nothing since pdftex 1.40 was released in 2007. It has now been moved to a separate distribution and is an empty stub just in case there are still documents that reference it. https://github.com/ho-tex/pdfcolmk
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/pdfcolmk The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/pdfcolmk/

pdfcolmk – Improved colour support under pdf (legacy stub)

The package used to provide macros that emulated the ‘colour stack’ functionality of dvips. The colour stack deals with colour manipulations when asynchronous events (like page-breaking) occur. At the time the package was written, pdf did not (yet) have such a stack, though dvips had had one for a long time.

This package was an experimental solution to the problem, and worked best with pdf.

For current releases of pdf (later than version 1.40.0, released in 2007), this package is not needed, since “real” colour stacks are available. The present pdfcolmk is therefore just an empty stub that does nothing at all, just in case there are still documents that reference it.

The documented source of the original package is still available at the github repository.
