Well then in case anyone needs such a transformation, I've constructed the (nonunique) transformation T
t:=angle(f,e); q:=e++f; p:=(c*fd*e)/q; s:=(c*e+d*f)/(q**2); transform T; T:=identity rotated t xscaled p yscaled q slanted s shifted (a,b);
This yields T=(a,b,c,d,e,f).
You can implement something like what you wanted directly because, just as you can write equations for the parts of a pair, you can also write equations for the parts of a transform: vardef mktransform (expr a,b,c,d,e,f) = save T_; transform T_; xpart T_ = a; ypart T_ = b; xxpart T_ = c; xypart T_ = d; yxpart T_ = e; yypart T_ = f; T_ enddef; After this transform T; T := mktransform (1,2,3,4,5,6); show T; produces:
(1,2,3,4,5,6)

Thanks Dan. This is much better than what I was doing. Troy
