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));
You can fix certain attributes to this dot, such as color:
dot((0,0),green);
Now let's draw a path, or a line segment.
draw((0,0)--(5,5));
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));
Now if this diagram is too large, we can size it to be smaller:
size(100); draw((0,0)--(5,5),green+linewidth(1));
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);
Note that this uses the cycle command, meaning the path returns to its original point, in this case (0,0).
