LEGO::Colors

LEGO::Colors - Set of LEGO Color data


NAME

LEGO::Colors - Set of LEGO Color data


SYNOPSIS


 use LEGO::Colors;

 use strict;

 my @system_names = LEGO::Colors->get_all_system_names();

 my %color_map = LEGO::Colors->get_color_names_for_system(

         'system' => 'Peeron',

 );

 my $green = LEGO::Colors->get_color("Green");

 my $gray = LEGO::Colors->get_color(

   color    => "Light Gray",

   'system' => "BrickLink",

 );


DESCRIPTION

This is a data storage class used to maintain a list of commonly used LEGO colors and their associated RGB values. See the LEGO::Color manpage for more information.

Different online sources of LEGO information use slightly different names for LEGO colors. I have chose a set of names to consider the ``default'', and those names are used in this module as the default color names. A color name aliasing system is available for access to names from other sources. Please see the SYSTEMS section of the documentation for more information.

All color and system names are case and whitespace INsensitive. That is, ``Dark Red'', ``darkred'' and ``dA RkrE d'' are all considered the same.


METHODS

get_all_system_names
Returns a list of all known color naming system names. Takes no arguments.

get_color_names_for_system
Returns a hash mapping default color names to their equivalent color names in the provided system. Takes one named argument, ``system'', which is optional. If omitted, default color names will be mapped to themselves, otherwise they will be mapped to the color names from the specified naming system.

get_color
Returns a LEGO::Color object representing the color named by the input arguments. Can take arguments in two forms; if a single string value is provided then it is assumed to be the color name from the default naming system. Otherwise, arguments can be passed as name => value pairs. The currently supported arguments are 'color', which is required, and 'system', which is optional and will default to the default system if not provided.


COLORS

The following colors are available, named here using the default naming system:

The preceeding data was harvested, with permission, from the wonderful LEGO color page found at http://www.britdogmodels.com/misc/legocolors/. The color names above represent the default naming system to which all other names are relative.


SYSTEMS

Each system has a name an then a list of color name mappings, from the default name to that system's name. Cases where the names are the same will be omitted, so these lists will only contain areas of contention. All color systems contain entries for all colors.

The following alternate naming systems are available:


 System Name: Peeron

 Default Name       Peeron Name

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Dark Blue          NavyBlue

 Dark Gray          DkGray

 Dark Orange        DkOrange

 Dark Pink          DkPink

 Dark Red           DkRed

 Light Gray         Gray

 Light Green        LtGreen

 Light Orange       LtOrange

 Light Violet       LtViolet

 Light Yellow       LtYellow

 Lime Green         Lime

 Medium Blue        MdBlue

 Pearl Light Gray   PearlLtGray

 System Name: Bricklink

 Default Name       Bricklink Name

If your favorite naming system is missing, or the data provided here is inaccurate or incomplete, please feel free to get in touch with me and I will make any appropriate modifications to a future release of this module. Note that it is also possible for you to make modifications to this file in your local installation and thus provide any desired color naming system.
