Thanks. I am working in windows, and adding R_ColorTable to globalvar.h
 and the list of export functions would not be portable, would it? Just
some background, I am building an interactive color picker for R, and i
need to be able to Display the colors in the current palette so that they
can be edited. I can do something like 

However, if there are named colors in the palette I have to do a lot of
dancing around to get it to a list of rgb values. I thought if there was
an easy way, I could avoid rewriting a lot of internal code.

Besides accessing the palette everything works dandy using graphapp.
