Creates an ICC-based color space.
ICC-based color spaces (PDF 1.3) are based on a cross-platform color profile as defined by the International Color Consortium (ICC). Unlike the CalGray, CalRGB, and Lab color spaces, which are characterized by entries in the color space dictionary, an ICC-based color space is characterized by a sequence of bytes in a standard format.
An ICC profile describes the color characteristics of a particular device and it provides necessary information to convert color data between native device color spaces and device independent color spaces. The ICC specification classifies color devices according to their use as input or output devices such as monitors, scanners, cameras or printers. Depending on the output PDF format different device classes are supported.
If the function succeeds the return value is the color space handle.
