 1:mod:`colorsys` --- Conversions between color systems

 9The :mod:`colorsys` module defines bidirectional conversions of color values
10between colors expressed in the RGB (Red Green Blue) color space used in
11computer monitors and three other coordinate systems: YIQ, HLS (Hue Lightness
12Saturation) and HSV (Hue Saturation Value).  Coordinates in all of these color
13spaces are floating point values.  In the YIQ space, the Y coordinate is between
140 and 1, but the I and Q coordinates can be positive or negative.  In all other
15spaces, the coordinates are all between 0 and 1.

23The :mod:`colorsys` module defines the following functions:
24
25
26.. function:: rgb_to_yiq(r, g, b)
27
28   Convert the color from RGB coordinates to YIQ coordinates.
29
30
31.. function:: yiq_to_rgb(y, i, q)
32
33   Convert the color from YIQ coordinates to RGB coordinates.
34
35
36.. function:: rgb_to_hls(r, g, b)
37
38   Convert the color from RGB coordinates to HLS coordinates.
39
40
41.. function:: hls_to_rgb(h, l, s)
42
43   Convert the color from HLS coordinates to RGB coordinates.
44
45
46.. function:: rgb_to_hsv(r, g, b)
47
48   Convert the color from RGB coordinates to HSV coordinates.
49
50
51.. function:: hsv_to_rgb(h, s, v)
52
53   Convert the color from HSV coordinates to RGB coordinates.
54
55Example::
56
57   >>> import colorsys
58   >>> colorsys.rgb_to_hsv(.3, .4, .2)
59   (0.25, 0.5, 0.4)
60   >>> colorsys.hsv_to_rgb(0.25, 0.5, 0.4)
61   (0.3, 0.4, 0.2)
