This is one of the most basic of asymptote elements.

Let us start off with the most basic of this basic command: drawing a dot.

To draw a dot, simply write the following code:

dot((0,0));

[asy] dot((0,0)); [/asy]

You can fix certain attributes to this dot, such as color:

dot((0,0),green);

[asy] dot((0,0),green); [/asy]

Now let's draw a path, or a line segment.

draw((0,0)--(5,5));

[asy] draw((0,0)--(5,5)); [/asy]

Once again, we can set certain attributes, such as color and linewidth, both at the same time.

draw((0,0)--(5,5),green+linewidth(1));

[asy] draw((0,0)--(5,5),green+linewidth(1)); [/asy]

Now if this diagram is too large, we can size it to be smaller:

size(100); draw((0,0)--(5,5),green+linewidth(1));

[asy] size(100); draw((0,0)--(5,5),green+linewidth(1)); [/asy]

We can also create multiple paths with one line, if we want a triangle or a square, for example:

draw((0,0)--(5,5)--(5,0)--cycle);

[asy] draw((0,0)--(5,5)--(5,0)--cycle); [/asy]

Note that this uses the cycle command, meaning the path returns to its original point, in this case (0,0).
