The colorwav package is a package that allows one to specify a wavelength (default
in nanometers) and retrieve the RGB value based upon code written by Dan Bruton.


To install this package, run colorwav.ins through LaTeX.  This will generate 
a file called colorwav.sty.  Put this file somewhere where LaTeX will find 
it---for instance localtexmf/tex/latex/colorwav/  (note that you will need 
to create the folder colorwav).

If you are using MikTeX, you then need to refresh the file name database 
by using MikTeX Options

col­or­wav – Colours by wave­length of vis­i­ble light

The pack­age al­lows the user to ob­tain an RGB value (suit­able for use in the color pack­age) from a wave­length of light. The de­fault unit is nanome­tres, but other units may be used.

Note that this func­tion is also avail­able within xcolor.
