This is a modification of previously submitted APPLYHATCH_PLUS.
APPLYHATCH_PLUSC creates a bitmap version of the defined figure where colored elements are replaced with specified colored hatch patterns.
APPLYHATCH_PLUSC allows for the definition of colors for the hatch patterns. Color may be defined using char string or RGB values. Various examples are provided showing some possibilities of APPLYHATCH_PLUSC and MAKEHATCH_PLUS.
Note: This function is different from Brandon Levey's APPLYHATCH_PLUSCOLOR, which has slightly different functionality and syntax.
