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.
