The `asypictureB` package allows users to integrate Asymptote code
for producing pictures into LaTeX source code using the shell-escape
functionality. It is an alternative to the `asymptote` package
that comes with Asymptote. The most important advantage of the
asypictureB package is that it provides immediate access to
Asymptote errors by repackaging them as LaTeX errors. It also allows
limited use of TeX macros such as \the\linewidth inside Asymptote code.

asypictureB – User-friendly integration of Asymptote into

The package is an unofficial alternative to the package provided with the Asymptote distribution, for including pictures within a source file.

While it does not duplicate all the features of the official package, this package is more user-friendly in several ways. Most notably, Asymptote errors are repackaged as errors, making debugging less of a pain. It also has a more robust mechanism for identifying unchanged pictures that need not be recompiled.
