Before reading any further 'windows.h' is officially banned from this thread.
As the title says, find out colours on the screen (or alternatively just under the mouse cursor) return the colour and the pixel position that it's at (if you're using the colour under the mouse cursor the latter will be irrelevant since you'd already know the position of the colour: under the mouse.)
This is a hard thing for me to accomplish (I'm gracefully out of my depth, but I appreciate a challenge.) though once I've finished I'll sort it into a simplistic mini-API for future use.
*I'm not actually asking for the whole thing to be written for me, any help will be appreciated.
Any ideas/methods/references/code snippets to help me would be great.
