−  '''Asymptote''' is a powerful vector graphics language designed for creating mathematical diagrams and figures. It can output images in either eps or pdf format and is compatible with the standard mathematics typesetting language, [[LaTeX]]. It is also a complete programming language and has cleaner syntax than its predecessor, [http://netlib.belllabs.com/who/hobby/MetaPost.html MetaPost], which was a language used only for twodimensional graphics.
 
   
−  Here is an example of an image that can be produced using Asymptote:

−  In a sense, Asymptote is the ruler and compass of typesetting.
 
−   
−   
−  You can use Asymptote on the AoPSWiki right now, by enclosing the Asymptote code within <tt><nowiki><asy>...</asy></nowiki></tt> tags. For example, the following code
 
−  <pre><nowiki><asy>
 
−  draw((0,0)(3,7),red);
 
−  dot((0,0));
 
−  dot((3,7));
 
−  label("Produced with Asymptote "+version.VERSION,point(S),2S);
 
−  </asy></nowiki></pre>
 
−  created the picture
 
−  <center><asy>
 
−  draw((0,0)(3,7),red);
 
−  dot((0,0));
 
−  dot((3,7));
 
−  label("Produced with Asymptote "+version.VERSION,point(S),2S);
 
−  </asy></center>
 
−  And on the AoPS forums you can use <tt><nowiki>[asy]..[/asy]</nowiki></tt>
 
−   
−  Another example:
 
−   
−  <pre><nowiki>[asy]
 
−  pair A,B,C,X,Y,Z;
 
−  A = (0,0);
 
−  B = (1,0);
 
−  C = (0.3,0.8);
 
−  draw(ABCA);
 
−  X = (B+C)/2;
 
−  Y = (A+C)/2;
 
−  Z = (A+B)/2;
 
−  draw(AX, red);
 
−  draw(BY,red);
 
−  draw(CZ,red);
 
−  [/asy]</nowiki></pre>
 
−   
−  <asy>
 
−  pair A,B,C,X,Y,Z;

−  Admins, I figured out a way to edit anything in the wiki page, please pm mem so I can explain to you how so this bug can hopefully be fixed. It is a very big bug ~Firebolt360.
