The colorwav package is a package that allows one to specify a wavelength (default
in nanometers) and retrieve the RGB value based upon code written by Dan Bruton.


To install this package, run colorwav.ins through LaTeX.  This will generate 
a file called colorwav.sty.  Put this file somewhere where LaTeX will find 
it---for instance localtexmf/tex/latex/colorwav/  (note that you will need 
to create the folder colorwav).

If you are using MikTeX, you then need to refresh the file name database 
by using MikTeX Options

colorwav – Colours by wavelength of visible light

The package allows the user to obtain an RGB value (suitable for use in the color package) from a wavelength of light. The default unit is nanometres, but other units may be used.

Note that this function is also available within xcolor.
