PTColorSpace

@interface PTColorSpace : NSObject

This abstract class is used to serve as a color space tag to identify the specific color space of a Color object. It contains methods that transform colors in a specific color space to/from several color space such as DeviceRGB and DeviceCMYK.

For purposes of the methods in this class, colors are represented as arrays of color components represented as doubles in a normalized range defined by each ColorSpace. For many ColorSpaces (e.g. DeviceRGB), this range is 0.0 to 1.0. However, some ColorSpaces have components whose values have a different range. Methods are provided to inquire per component minimum and maximum normalized values.

Note

Note that in Pattern color space (i.e. for ColorSpace::e_pattern) ‘color values’ are PDF::PatternColor objects instead of the numeric component values (i.e. ColorPt) used with other spaces.
