The programming language Julia is now available on all of our shell servers. This language can be interpreted (with just in time compiling), or compiled to object. It has a syntax in many ways similar to C++ but has a much more extensive set of math operations. It can handle complex and imaginary numbers for example. It also has nicer string operations than C or C++. It has built in regex capability. All in all it’s a very impressive language and worth checking out.
It is also on our web server so you can use it for CGI’s if you like.
