NAME
asy - Asymptote: a script-based vector graphics language SYNOPSIS
asy [options] [file ...] DESCRIPTION
Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language for technical drawings, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. Asymptote provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. OPTIONS
If no arguments are given, Asymptote runs in interactive mode. If "-" is given as the file argument, Asymptote reads from standard input. A summary of options is included below. The effect of most options can be negated by prepending no to the option name. Default values for most options may also be entered in the file .asy/config.asy in the user's home directory using the long form: import settings; batchView=true; For a complete description, see the Info files. -V,-View View output; command-line only. -a,-align C|B|T|Z Center, Bottom, Top, or Zero page alignment [C]. -antialias n Antialiasing width for rasterized output [2]. -arcballradius pixels Arcball radius [750]. -auto3D Automatically activate 3D scene [true]. -autobillboard 3D labels always face viewer by default [true]. -autoimport string Module to automatically import. -autoplain Enable automatic importing of plain [true]. -autoplay Autoplay 3D animations [false]. -autorotate Enable automatic PDF page rotation [false]. -batchMask Mask fpu exceptions in batch mode [false]. -batchView View output in batch mode [false]. -bw Convert all colors to black and white [false]. -cd directory Set current directory; command-line only. -cmyk Convert rgb colors to cmyk [false]. -c,-command string Command to autoexecute. -compact Conserve memory at the expense of speed [false]. -d,-debug Enable debugging messages [false]. -divisor n Garbage collect using purge(divisor=n) [2]. -doubleclick ms Emulated double-click timeout [200]. -embed Embed rendered preview image [true]. -exitonEOF Exit interactive mode on EOF [true]. -fitscreen Fit rendered image to screen [true]. -framedelay ms Additional frame delay [0]. -framerate frames/s Animation speed [30]. -globalwrite Allow write to other directory [false]. -gray Convert all colors to grayscale [false]. -h,-help Show summary of options; command-line only. -historylines n Retain n lines of history [1000]. -iconify Iconify rendering window [false]. -inlineimage Generate inline embedded image [false]. -inlinetex Generate inline TeX code [false]. -interactiveMask Mask fpu exceptions in interactive mode [true]. -interactiveView View output in interactive mode [true]. -interactiveWrite Write expressions entered at the prompt to stdout [true]. -k,-keep Keep intermediate files [false]. -keepaux Keep intermediate LaTeX .aux files [false]. -level n Postscript level [3]. -l,-listvariables List available global functions and variables [false]. -localhistory Use a local interactive history file [false]. -loop Loop 3D animations [false]. -m,-mask Mask fpu exceptions; command-line only. -maxtile pair Maximum rendering tile size [(1024,768)]. -maxviewport pair Maximum viewport size [(2048,2048)]. -multiline Input code over multiple lines at the prompt [false]. -multipleView View output from multiple batch-mode files [false]. -multisample n Multisampling width for screen images [4]. -offscreen Use offscreen rendering [false]. -O,-offset pair PostScript offset [(0,0)]. -f,-outformat format Convert each output file to specified format. -o,-outname name Alternative output directory/filename. -p,-parseonly Parse file [false]. -pdfreload Automatically reload document in pdfviewer [false]. -pdfreloaddelay usec Delay before attempting initial pdf reload [750000]. -position pair Initial 3D rendering screen position [(0,0)]. -prc Embed 3D PRC graphics in PDF output [true]. -prompt string Prompt [> ]. -prompt2 string Continuation prompt for multiline input [..]. -q,-quiet Suppress welcome message [false]. -render n Render 3D graphics using n pixels per bp (-1=auto) [-1]. -resizestep step Resize step [1.2]. -reverse reverse 3D animations [false]. -rgb Convert cmyk colors to rgb [false]. -safe Disable system call [true]. -scroll n Scroll standard output n lines at a time [0]. -spinstep deg/s Spin speed [60]. -svgemulation Emulate unimplemented SVG shading [false]. -tabcompletion Interactive prompt auto-completion [true]. -tex engine latex|pdflatex|xelatex|tex|pdftex|context|none [latex]. -thick Render thick 3D lines [true]. -thin Render thin 3D lines [true]. -threads Use POSIX threads for 3D rendering [true]. -toolbar Show 3D toolbar in PDF output [true]. -s,-translate Show translated virtual machine code [false]. -twice Run LaTeX twice (to resolve references) [false]. -twosided Use two-sided 3D lighting model for rendering [true]. -u,-user string General purpose user string. -v,-verbose Increase verbosity level (can specify multiple times) [0]. -version Show version; command-line only. -wait Wait for child processes to finish before exiting [false]. -warn string Enable warning; command-line only. -where Show where listed variables are declared [false]. -zoomfactor factor Zoom step factor [1.05]. -zoomstep step Mouse motion zoom step [0.1].
