       grabc - identifies an onscreen colour using a crosshair cursor.




       grabc is s simple but very useful program to determine the color string
       in hex (or in RGB components) by clicking on a  pixel  on  the  screen.
       While  web browsing, lots of time you find a nice color and wonder what
       color is that.  Well just use grabc!

       When this program is run, the mouse pointer is grabbed and changed to a
       cross  hair  and  when  the  mouse is clicked, the color of the clicked
       pixel is written to stdout in hex prefixed with #. It will the R, G,  B
       component also in the stderr.
