Description ----------- 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. Installation ------------ 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).
