ncl_rgbyiq man page

RGBYIQ — Converts a color specification given in the RGB Red, Green, Blue, (RGB) color space to a color specification in the YIQ color space.

Synopsis

CALL RGBYIQ (R, G, B, Y, I, Q)

C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>

void c_rgbyiq (float r, float g, float b, float *y,
float *i, float *q)

Description

R
(REAL, input, range [0.,1.]) represents the red intensity component of the input point in RGB color space.
G
(REAL, input, range [0.,1.]) represents the green intensity component of the input point in RGB color space.
B
(REAL, input, range [0.,1.]) represents the blue intensity component of the input point in RGB color space.
Y
(REAL, output, range [0.,1.]) This is the color component of a television signal that is shown on black-and-white televisions; Y minimizes the effect of two colors appearing different to the human eye but mapping to similar monochrome intensities.
I
(REAL, output, range [-.6,.6]) attains its maximum when the input triple is (1.,0.,0.); I attains its minimum when the input triple is (0.,1.,1.).
Q
(REAL, output, range [-.52,.52]) attains its maximum when the input triple is (1.,0.,1.); Q attains its minimum when the input triple is (0.,1.,0.).

C-Binding Description

The C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.

Examples

Use the ncargex command to see the following relevant example: tcolcv, fcce02.

Access

To use RGBYIQ or c_rgbyiq, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
