       ascolor is a simple GUI to create color schemes for AfterStep.  ascolor writes the  result
       into  a  file  named  color  scheme in current directory or in the directory given with -o
       option (see below).

       There are 4 parameters to the color scheme: Angle, Hue, Saturation  and  Value.   Pressing
       arrow  keys  in  ascolor  window  will change the currently selected parameter.  To select
       parameter press 'a', 'h', 's' or 'v' keys.

       ascolor will also create .mini file suitable to be used as  minipixmap  in  the  AfterStep

       Rename  and copy both colorscheme and .mini files into ~/.afterstep/colorschemes directory
       and refresh AfterStep menu. New entry should show  up.   Select  it  to  apply  new  color
