Julia is a new open-source programming/scripting language designed for high-performance scientific computing. The goal is to combine the simplicity of Python with the performance approaching that of statically-compiled languages like C.
Julia has a number of other attractive features including:
- Dynamic type system
- Powerful shell-like capabilities for managing other processes
- Designed for parallelism and distributed computation
- Automatic generation of efficient, specialized code for different argument types
- Elegant and extensible conversions and promotions for numeric and other types
#!/usr/bin/env julia using m8r m8r.init() inp = m8r.input("in") out = m8r.output("out") n1 = m8r.histint(inp,"n1") n2 = m8r.leftsize(inp,1) clip = m8r.getfloat("clip") trace = Array(Float32,n1) for i2 in 1:n2 m8r.floatread(trace,n1,inp) trace = clamp(trace,-clip,clip) m8r.floatwrite(trace,n1,out) end
Compare it with scripts or programs in other languages.
