Asymptote is a powerful script-based vector graphics language that provides a natural coordinate-based framework for technical drawing. Asymptote has labels and equations that are typeset with LaTeX, for high-quality PostScript output.
A major advantage of Asymptote over other graphics packages is that it is a programming language, as opposed to just a graphics program: it can therefore exploit the best features of script (command-driven) and graphical user interface (GUI) methods.
Asymptote is available as a module:
> module avail asymptote > module load asymptote
The modulefile also loads gsl . Asymptote 1.98 is also available as part of the Tex Live module.
Batch Mode Example:
> cat test.asy draw((0,0)--(100,100)) > asy test # produces a postscript file > asy -V test # produces a postscript file and displays it > asy -f pdf test # produces a pdf file
