I want to know how many different colors can human eye recognize. I
guess it is much less than 24bit color space can offer. And how many
(especially which) color can be distinguished easily without mistake by
most people (and children - if that makes special category). I mean not
to be confused if this color is azure, AliceBlue or lavender (names
picked from rgb.txt). Maybe somebody can point me to some web article on
the web where such matters are described.

If you are wondering why I need it here it is: I want to create some
brochure with instruction how to solve MasterMind game where pegs are
all different colors. Here I do not need that much colors but the
question popped in my mind. Also consider creating sudoku puzzle where
colors are used instead of numbers/letters (there are also bigger sudoku
than just 9x9).
