Some of the free-standing graphics applications may also be used (effectively) in-line in LaTeX documents; examples are

- asymptote
- The package
*asymptote*(provided in the*asymptote*distribution) defines an environment`asy`

which arranges that its contents are available for processing, and will therefore be typeset (after “enough” runs, in the ‘usual’ LaTeX way).Basically, you write

`\begin`

`{asy}`

`‹`*asymptote code*›

`\end`

`{asy}`

latex document asy document-*.asy latex document

- egplot
- Allows you to incorporate
*GNUplot*instructions in your document, for processing outside of LaTeX. The package provides commands that enable the user to do calculation in*GNUplot*, feeding the results into the diagram to be drawn. - gmp
- Allows you to include the source of MetaPost diagrams, with parameters of the diagram passed from the environment call.
- emp
- An earlier package providing facilities similar to those of
*gmp*(*gmp*’s author hopes that his package will support the facilities*emp*, which he believes is in need of update.) - mpgraphics
- Again, allows you to program parameters of MetaPost diagrams from your LaTeX document, including the preamble details of the LaTeX code in any recursive call from MetaPost.
