Asymptote 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.

Here are some key features of "Asymptote":

· inspired by MetaPost, with much cleaner, powerful C++-like programming syntax and numerics;
· mathematically oriented (e.g. rotation of vectors by complex multiplication);
· LaTeX typesetting of labels (important for document consistency);
· compiles figures into virtual machine code for speed without sacrificing portability;
· 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;
· high-level graphics commands are implemented in the Asymptote language itself, allowing them to be easily tailored to specific applications;
· provides a standard for typesetting mathematical figures, just as TeX/LaTeX has become the standard for typesetting equations.. . Asymptote, a powerful script-based vectorgraphics language for mathematical/technical drawings, with LaTeXtypesetting of labels
