Julia is a high level, high performance, dynamic language for technical computing.
Julia is fast: It was designed from the beginning for high performance. Julia programs JIT compile to efficient native code for multiple systems and architectures via LLVM.
Julia is general: It uses multiple dispatch as a paradigm, making it easy to express object oriented and functional programming patterns. The standard library provides asynchronous I/O, process control, logging, profiling, a package manager, and more. In addition, there is a rich ecosystem of over 2400 packages and counting across a number of domains.
Julia is easy to use: It has high level syntax and is dynamically typed, providing accessibility for programmers of all backgrounds and experience levels, and making it feel like a scripting language.
Julia is optionally typed: It has an extensive, flexible, and extensible type system, and type declarations can be used to clarify and solidify programs. But type declarations are not required for general use.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
