Target version:-


Today in GMT5 with grdinfo -T and makecpt -G we have a great improvement creating custom color tables, but we still must cat|grep|awk|head|tail the original color table to get its range, or to look if it is continuous or not.

With a gmt command like cptinfo we could automate things even more.

Perhaps you could suggest some specific outputs you would like to see. I think we can do this via new options to makecpt rather than adding a new program.

This is old, but I think that I was tired of doing cat cpt-file
to know max, min and step and I want it without inspecting the cpt-file.
