The code which Ken Ray pointed you to at Borland's web site looks
promising, but keep in mind that CMYK is only intended for printing
pigmented inks on paper or some other reflective media. The color
representation on the monitor, which is transmissive is always RGB even
though it can be manipulated by other methods of color conversion. In other
words, you cannot actually "display" CMYK color on a monitor. Even
Photoshop in CMYK mode is really displaying CMYK-to-RGB data.
