[OS X TeX] Configure TeXshop to directly work from a .asy file?

Has anyone done this?

I'm getting tired of the whole embedded in a LaTeX file thing.

I tried creating a .engine file like:


set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
set filename = "$1"
set epsname = "${filename:r}.eps"

asy -v "$filename"
ps2pdf "$epsname"

and it makes the .eps file --- but never distills to the .pdf --- why not?

ps2pdf triangle.eps
