# [texhax] asymptote in latex - how?

This works for me, Bo :

[asy-test.ltx]

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{asymptote}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\input asy-source.ltx
\caption{This is a test.  Let's see if it works...}
\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

[asy-source.ltx]

\begin{asy}
size (3cm);
draw (unitcircle);
\end{asy}

Are you trying to avoid including the \begin {asy} / \end {asy}
in your included file ?  That may be rather more tricky, but
I haven't tried it ...
