Asymptote

Category: Analysis-Visualization

Description

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.

Use

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

To start an interactive session:

> asy
