8.23 labelpath

This module uses the PSTricks pstextpath macro to fit labels along a path (properly kerned, as illustrated in the example file curvedlabel.asy), using the command

void labelpath(picture pic=currentpicture, Label L, path g,
               string justify=Centered, pen p=currentpen);

Here justify is one of LeftJustified, Centered, or RightJustified. The x component of a shift transform applied to the Label is interpreted as a shift along the curve, whereas the y component is interpreted as a shift away from the curve. All other Label transforms are ignored. This package requires the latex tex engine and inherits the limitations of the PSTricks \pstextpath macro.
