`MetaPost`

This package provides some useful routines to help `MetaPost`

users
migrate old `MetaPost`

code to `Asymptote`

. Further
contributions here are welcome.

Unlike `MetaPost`

, `Asymptote`

does not implicitly solve
linear equations and therefore does not have the notion of a
`whatever`

unknown. The routine `extension`

(see extension)
provides a useful replacement for a common use of `whatever`

: finding the
intersection point of the lines through `P`

, `Q`

and
`p`

, `q`

. For less common occurrences of `whatever`

, one
can use the built-in explicit linear equation solver `solve`

instead.
