It doesn't do exactly what you want at the moment, but it's a basic start:


Use [R], [G] and [B] to change the RGB values.
[SHIFT] will make the colors go down.
[CTRL] will make the color change by 1 (rather than by 16)

[?] toggles display of RGB values.
[P] changes RGB value display's position (top left or bottom left corners)

"colortest --help"  for all of the details.

Requires libSDL.  Uses BMPs to display RGB values, so no extra libs needed.
