These functions provide additional colors to MatLab's default, both for curve plotting and image display.

The color names that these functions use were taken from
on September 2015.

Three files are included:
x11colors.mat : data file of the colors
x11colors.m : function to get color values that Matlab understands. Use this one for curve plotting.
x11colormp.m : function to create color maps with the colors from x11colors. Use this one for image display.

The first one is read-only. Detailed information on how to use the other two is included in each file.
