Just to be clear, gcolor2 (well, gcolor actually) defines itself as a "color
selector intended to make finding pleasing foreground/background colors for
text mode apps quick and painless" and agave defines itself as "a very
simple application...that allows you to generate a variety of color schemes
from a single starting color".

every see one of those websites where the colours are aweful or don't
match? there is a logic to colors working together and these programs help
you create a pleasing colour palette.

good question, Len. of course, i am going to say that it depends on what
this application is being used to create, as i believe it could be used in
two (and one "not shipped") uses.

1. creating a color scheme for a book (publishing)
2. creating a color scheme for an artwork, logo, or other stand alone image
3. creating a color scheme for a website ("not shipped")
