Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language
for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of
other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated
compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an
extensive mathematical function library. The library, largely written
in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of-breed C and Fortran
libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing,
and string processing.
This package only contains the essential parts of the Julia environment:
the julia executable and the standard library.
