It is not possible to make a regular cpt with fill patterns and continuos color.

Also, in the docs ( http://gmt.soest.hawaii.edu/doc/5.4.1/GMT_Docs.html#regular-cpts ) there is mistake

30 p16+r200 80 -
80 - 100 -
100 200/0/0 200/255/255 0 (it should say " 200 255/255/0").
200 yellow 300 green

Several problems. A minor one was that no provision was implemented to skip slices marked for skipping. I added this in r18214 which also fixed the typo in the docs. The more serious problem is that the mixing of patterns and continuously varying color is not supported. I have added new test cptmix.sh based on the original example provided to remind us of the problem. About to go on travel so I am afraid this will take a few weeks unless someone else looks at it.
