construction of triangle of given perimeter, given point and angle

The construction goes thus: draw a circle that touches both sides of the angle at distance of P/2 to A (say, in B and C). Then the line that passes through the point given outside of the angle and touches the circle (i.e. the segment of it that is contained in ABC) is the one looked for.
