%% color
% Converts *color name* or *hexadecimal color code* to an *rgb* *triplet*.
%
% An *rgb* *triplet* is a three-element row vector whose elements specify
% the intensities of the red, green, and blue components of the color. The intensities
% are in the range [0,1]; for example, [0.4 0.6 0.7].
%
% A *hexadecimal color code* is a character vector or a string scalar that
% starts with a hash symbol (#) followed by three or six hexadecimal digits, which
% can range from 0 to F. The values are not case sensitive. Thus, the color codes
% '#FF8800', '#ff8800', '#F80', and '#f80' are equivalent.
%
%% Syntax
