find the closest color with a name
color format recognized by ColorTools
(optional) equation(s) of the form option=value where option is one of metric, new, number, palette, or threshold
metric=string or name : the type of color distance to use
new = truefalse : option passed to GetColorNames if palette is not specified
number = posint : the maximum number of nearby colors to return
palette : a palette or palette name, a list of palettes and/or palette names, or "all"
threshold = float : a maximum distance. If number is not specified all results closer than this value will be returned.
The NearestNamedColor command locates one or more of the nearest named colors to the input color.
It returns one or more named colors, along with the distances from the input color. When there is only one result, that single nearest color name is output, along with the distance in the specified metric (cie94 by default).
When the number of outputs is greater than one, then the output is a list of the nearest colors and distances, closest first.
