How to Install Julia on openSUSE?
Julia is an open-source, compiled, high-level, a dynamic programming language designed to give users the speed of C/C++ while remaining as easy to use as Python. It was originally intended for numerical/technical computing. It is not object-oriented in the full sense because you cannot attach methods to Julia’s objects (“types”), and It is not a very difficult language to learn.
Features of Julia
- Multiple dispatches: It provides the ability to define function behavior across many combinations of argument types.
- High performance: It is designed for distributed and parallel computation.
- Ability to interface with other languages.
- User-defined types are as fast and compact as built-ins. And a lot more.
