@Frantic: Color monitor has three electron beam guns (each for one of three color components). Cathode-ray tube has special magnets to set convergence of all electron beams. If this is not set properly the picture is bad. For example, instead of the white lines you see this:

Program generates test screens for the pairs of beams: R+B (purple), R+G (yellow), G+B (cyan) and for all three beams R+G+B (white). With this adjust the magnets is easier. See pdf file.

@uka: What is the exact purpose? My guess is that it shows whether the lines will seem to be straight or not, but... It would be nice if you could elaborate a little on the more exact purpose and thoughts behind this program? I am curious.
