Asymptote Vector Graphics Package


I've seen this before in my Ubuntu repository when searching for LaTeX packages.  I want to try this one day.  Asymptote is a vector graphics software, except it is all through its own programming language.  At first, it seems  scary, but in reality, it is the same thing as making a plot in Python, MATLAB, Mathematice, Sage, Maxima, etc.  Asymptote seems nice since it seems very streamlined like LaTeX is for documents.
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.
