Take a look at
(or simply look for metapost anywhere else on the web).

This should suit all your needs (it can even solve linear equations) - 
ask if you have any problems remaining.

PS 1: Regarding the output format - if you use (in plain metapost):
	mpost filename
	mptopdf filename
The output will be in .pdf. There's a file named filename.1, which is 
essentially postscript, but will not be shown properly (labels). So it 
is necessary to use an additional run of
	pdftops filename

(I can send a minimal example later.)
