The immediate solution is to use *only* those colors as appear in
countours in the color bar. 

And no for loops are needed.  You could write:


or dispense with the chicanery altogether and simply use:

TV, bar, 0,0,XSIZE=.5,YSIZE=4,/inches

Using the /inches (or /centimeters) keyword to TV for postscript output
is highly advised.

I get the same pure yellow either way:  #ffff00
