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; ...and more!
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
