    corz color pickin chooser
    a color picker to use on your desktop, or in your AutoIt applications.

    for information, see here..

        http://corz.org/windows/software/color-pickin-chooser/

    have fun!

    ;o) Cor

    If you are compiling this yourself, you need to use "AutoIt Wrapper"
    to add the extra icons. You will also need to use AT LEAST version
    1.9.3 of AutoIt Wrapper for the paths to work correctly. You can
    download it here..

;

; to skip the rest. HOWEVER, sometimes you will see dozens of black entries, and then more
; valid colors, and then another group of black entries, then more colors, and so on.
;

; are comments, both of which will be stripped when imported into color pickin chooser.
;
; Anyways, this simple function will grab all the colors, nomatter where they are, from
; either type of palette and store them in color pickin chooser groups.
