NAME

Color::Named - Work with named colors

SYNOPSIS

use Color::Named;        # load the X11 color set
use Color::Named <X11>;  # same
use Color::Named <XKCD>; # load the XKCD color set

# these are all identical
my $color = Color::Named.new( :name<antiquewhite> );
my $color = Color::Named.new( :name<antique white> );
my $color = Color::Named.new( :name<Antique White> );

say "Bazinga!" if $color ~~ Color;
say $color.name;        #antiquewhite
say $color.pretty-name; #Antique White

DESCRIPTION

Color::Named is a subclass of Color. It adds a new constructor to which you can pass the name of a color. The name must be defined in your chosen color set.

You can choose from (currently) three color sets: X11, CSS3 and the xkcd set from the xkcd color survey.

The X11 and CSS3 sets are basically identical, except for 4 colors.

Note:

Other than Color objects, instances of Color::Named stringify to the pretty name (with spaces, title cased) of the color.
