Help for people getting mixed up with ImageMagick's convert.exe and Microsoft's program of the same name.

I have renamed Image-Magick.html to ImageMagick.html, ie I've dropped the '-'.
My apologies for any inconvenience, but the '-' should never have been there anyway.
All references to the old name have, hopefully, been fixed. Let me know if you find a problem. These changes include the name of the directory, savage.net.au/ImageMagick/.

Various hax have been updated to use Annotate(stroke => 'none'), rather than stroke => 'color', so as to produce sharper text.

ImageMagick Hax 27 .. 39 are now available for download.
Included in this set of Hax are:
1: A program which reads color.html (ie a copy of http://www.imagemagick.org/www/color.html) and converts the color table therein into a file containing Perl code.
2: This output file is called im-hax-color-2-config.eval.
3: A program which reads that output file and converts it into a Perl hash. You can use this code in any of your Perl programs to create a hash, ie a look-up table, which can convert in any direction between color name, hex value and 8-bit RGB value. Also, the program writes the hash out to a file containing 3 tables. The first table is sorted by color name, the second by hex value, and the third by RGB value. Lastly, the program demonstrates how to look up hex and RGB values given a color name, how to look up color name and RGB values given a hex value, and how to look up a color name and hex value given an RGB value. (Don't get hax and hex confused :-).
4: The output file is called im-hax-color-2-config.txt, and is available for separate download, for use as a general reference document, if you are not interested in the Perl side of things.
Note: Ideally, a future version of these 2 Hax will incorporate 16 bit color values.
5: A trivial (as usual) 'conjure' script im-hax-conjure-1.msl.

ImageMagick Hax are a set of Perl scripts targeted at people beginning to use the Perl module Image::Magick. The aim is to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
You are expected to study the scripts before running them. Hence the promise: No surprises.
Each hax is deliberately designed to be trivial, so as to help focus on one feature of ImageMagick. The name of the hax tells you the point of the exercise. Eg: im-hax-crop-1.pl demonstrates Crop(...). It's that simple. This helps deliver on the promise: No surprises.
*.cgi are CGI scripts, and *.pl are command line scripts. A simple menu script, im-hax-menu.cgi, is supplied to help run the CGI scripts.
Comments at the start of each hax list the assumed directory structure, input files and output files. These are also stored in variables at the start of each script, to facilitate installation anywhere.
All input files are either shipped with ImageMagick or output from a hax. Eg: The output of im-hax-rotate-1.pl is input to im-hax-composite-1.pl.
Only the generic TTF file, Generic.ttf is used to annotate images. Nothing would be gained here by using a different font file.
