./graphics/asymptote, Powerful descriptive vector graphics language for technical drawings

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.41nb4, Package name: asymptote-2.41nb4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language that provides a
natural coordinate-based framework for technical drawing. Labels and equations
are typeset with LaTeX, for high-quality PostScript output. A major advantage of
Asymptote over other graphics packages is that it is a programming language, as
opposed to just a graphics program. Features of Asymptote:

# provides a portable standard for typesetting mathematical figures,
just as TeX/LaTeX has become the standard for typesetting equations;

# generates and embeds 3D vector PRC graphics into PDF files;

# inspired by MetaPost, with a much cleaner, powerful C++-like
programming syntax and floating-point numerics;

# runs on all major platforms (UNIX, MacOS, Microsoft Windows);

# mathematically oriented (e.g. rotation of vectors by complex multiplication);

# LaTeX typesetting of labels (for document consistency);

# uses simplex method and deferred drawing to solve overall size
constraint issues between fixed-sized objects (labels and arrowheads)
and objects that should scale with figure size;
...and more!

Log message:
all: migrate some SourceForge homepage URLs back from https to http

https://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-ch … 05146.html

In the above commit, the homepage URLs were migrated from http to https,
assuming that SourceForge would use the same host names for both http and
https connections. This assumption was wrong. Their documentation at
https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/documen … %20VHOSTs/ states
that the https URLs use the domain sourceforge.io instead.

To make the homepages from the above commit reachable again, pkglint has
been extended to check for reachable homepages. This check is only
enabled when the --network command line option is given.

Each of the homepages that referred to https://$project.sourceforge.net
before was migrated to https://$project.sourceforge.io (27), and if that
was not reachable, to the fallback URL http://$project.sourceforge.net
(163).

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.
