manua has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All,

I am using PDF::API2 module and for different fonts and lines, I want to use custom colors, created with RGB values.

How can I create custom colors with the RGB Values. Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks, Manu

    You can just use an HTML like RGB hex mask, prefixed by '#':
    #!/usr/bin/perl use common::sense; use PDF::API2; my $pdf = PDF::API2->new(); my $page = $pdf->page(0); my $gfx = $page->gfx; my $red_rgb = '#ff0000'; $gfx->strokecolor($red_rgb); $gfx->rect(10,100,200,200); $gfx->stroke; $pdf->saveas('/tmp/red_box.pdf');
    This'll work pretty well everywhere you can specify a color.
