#' @title List the valid Tk color names
#' @description The core of Loon is implemented in Tcl and Tk. Hence, when
#'   defining colors using color names, Loon uses the Tcl color representation
#'   and not those of R. The colors are taken from the Tk sources:
#'   \code{doc/colors.n}.
#'   If you want to make sure that the color names are represented exactly as
#'   they are in R then you can convert the color names to hexencoded color
#'   strings, see the examples below.
#' @export
#' @examples
#' # check if R colors names and TK color names are the same
#' setdiff(tolower(colors()), tolower(tkcolors()))
#' setdiff(tolower(tkcolors()), tolower(colors()))
#' # hence there are currently more valid color names in Tk
#' # than there are in R
#' # Let's compare the colors of the R color names in R and Tk
