I am a complete beginner in terms of vectorial graphics. In my Bachelor Thesis I get data (provided in the attached file), which I want to compile with the programm Asymptote. I know, that it is possible to configure my TexStudio in a way, that it compiles .asy files. But my supervisor don't want me to do it like that. I already downloaded the programm Asymptote and got the file. However I am not able to compile it under Windows 10. I think im just doing a stupid mistake in terms of syntax, because my Supervisor can compile the provided file under Ubuntu with Asymptote.
Now my question: Can someone give me a detailed "command" path to how I can compile the file?
I already tried the following:
- start Asymptote
- change the directory to the folder where "plots.asy" is
- file fin=input("plots.asy") and then I get an error 1.1 "Cannot open file "plots.asy".
So I also already tried to use my Windows shell and compile it with this in the following way:
- Start the Windows shell
- change the directory to the folder with "plots.asy"
asy.exe -f .png"plots.asy" and run it. then I get the following error:
plots.asy: 1.13: cannot call 'guide operator --(... guide)' with parameters '(triple, triple)' plots.asy: 1.49: no matching variable 'Arrow3'
I already tried to solve my problem by reading the manual provided by Asymptote itself, but i just can't figure it out. I already searched this forum and some other tutorials, but I only found either the manual or the problem is not the same as mine.
And last but not least the file. It's uploaded on fileupload.net, I hope this is ok.
