Module Name: pkgsrc Committed By: wiz Date: Fri Aug 21 23:02:29 UTC 2009 Update of /cvsroot/pkgsrc/graphics/asymptote In directory ivanova.netbsd.org:/tmp/cvs-serv12628 Log Message: Initial import of asymptote-1.84 from pkgsrc-wip, packaged by fulviociriaco, updated by me. 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, 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. Features of Asymptote: # provides a portable standard for typesetting mathematical figures, just as TeX/LaTeX has become the standard for typesetting equations; # generates and embeds 3D vector PRC graphics into PDF files; # inspired by MetaPost, with a much cleaner, powerful C++-like programming syntax and 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 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 easily tailored to specific applications.
