Note: https://julialang.org/ has beautiful and open-source documentation, non-Arch-specific information should be contributed there.

Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for numerical computing. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.

Installation

Install either julia or julia-binAUR. While the package in the Arch Linux repository works fine for many users, it may crash when installing some specific libraries (e.g. LLVM, LLVMExtra). The AUR package provides official builds compiled against patched LLVM libs. To learn and use Julia, please read upstream documents.
