GetPixel 1.10

GetPixel allows you to zoom around the screen and recall the hexidecimal colour
value of a pixel on the screen.

Move the mouse and the crosshair to grab the pixel colour. Use the arrow keys
for a greater accuracy of the spot. ESC key exits.

- Initial version 1.0 by Richard Lake.
- Version 1.10 additional code by Marko K. Seppänen.
- Program Icon 1 by Marko K. Seppänen, derived from icon by Martin Mason.
- Program Icon 2 from Martin Mason's Icon Set 2009-2010.

1.10, 2016 May 07, by Marko K. Seppänen:
  - Implemented that you can move the spot/crosshair (mouse cursor) with the
    arrow keys for a greater precision during the zooming.
  - Moved the Y cordinate onto its own row below the X cordinate in the
    info window.
  - Added a new program icon for easier distinguishing this icon from
    similar looking icons. (Old icon saved as opt. icon 2.)
  - Declared application information. (The title, authors, $VER: and $EXTVER:
    versions, and description.)
  - Added readme file, this file.

Initial OS4Depot readme

This is my first piece of bloatware for AmigaOS - however I haven't found any
other 'free' tool that can do this easily - so who cares about the filesize - it
does the job nicely.

So what does this do?

GetPixel simply takes a simple snapshot of your screen and then allows you to
Zoom around it and recall the Hexidecimal colour value of a pixel on the screen.

This can be useful at times for graphic artists and web designers.  For
instance, you might find a website of interest, you simply start GetPixel and
move the mouse of areas of the website of interest and write down the hex values
necessary for your own CSS styles or whatever.

This is quicker and more convenient than first taking a screenshot and opening
it in up an art package either installed natively or on another platform.

Source code is included for anyone that is interest in perhaps adding more
