Ted made them:


As advertised, they reproduce the 41 standard colour ramps used in IDL
(although I haven't checked whether they're exact reproductions).

They're not copied directly from the IDL souce (which stores them in
some unknown binary format), but an N-line IDL program could produce
them trivially (for small N).
