Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language that provides a natural coordinate-based framework for technical drawing. Labels and equations are typeset with LaTeX, the de-facto standard for typesetting mathematics. A major advantage of Asymptote over other graphics packages is that it is a programming language, as opposed to just a graphics program. You can even run it in your browser without installing it, using the Asymptote Web Application. Just enter the code import workcone; (including the semicolon) and click the Run button. Features of Asymptote: - provides a portable standard for typesetting mathematical figures, just as TeX/LaTeX has become the standard for typesetting equations; - generates high-quality PostScript, PDF, SVG, WebGL, and PRC vector graphics; - embeds 3D vector WebGL graphics within HTML files; - embeds 3D vector PRC graphics within PDF files; - inspired by MetaPost, with a much cleaner, powerful C++-like programming syntax and IEEE floating-point numerics; - runs on all major platforms (UNIX, MacOS, Microsoft Windows); - mathematically oriented (e.g. rotation of vectors by complex multiplication); - LaTeX typesetting of labels (for document consistency); - uses the simplex method and deferred drawing to solve overall size constraint issues between fixed-sized objects (labels and arrowheads) and objects that should scale with figure size; - fully generalizes MetaPost path construction algorithms to three dimensions; - compiles commands into virtual machine code for speed without sacrificing portability; - high-level graphics commands are implemented in the Asymptote language itself, allowing them to be tailored to specific applications.
