The XcupStoreColors function changes the colormap entries of the pixel
values in the pixel members of the XColor structures. The colormap
entries are allocated as if an AllocColor has been used instead, i.e.
the colors are read-only (shareable). XcupStoreColors returns the num‐
ber of colors that were successfully allocated in the colormap.
A Value error is generated if a pixel is not a valid index into the
colormap. A BadMatch error is generated if the colormap does not belong
to a GrayScale, PseudoColor, or DirectColor visual.
Applications which allocate many colors in a screen's default colormap,
e.g. a color-cube or a gray-ramp, should allocate them with XCupStore‐
Colors. By using XCupStoreColors the colors will be allocated sharable
(read-only) and any other application which allocates the same color
will share that color cell.
