julia on raspbian buster – git source repository update

I continue to work with the tutorial examples on Julia By Example (https://juliabyexample.helpmanual.io/). Rather than publish them here and talk about them, I’ve pushed everything I’ve updated to my modest spot on GitHub (https://github.com/wbeebe/julia). As I update more and bring it into compliance with Julia 1.2, I’ll continue to push it all there.

If you read the README, you’ll see I grew disillusioned with Julia September 2018. Coming back nearly a year later and a lot has changed, and working with Julia is now (for me) a lot more enjoyable. I also see the potential of Julia.


simple powershell installation scripts for macos

If you’re playing with Powershell under Mac (see https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell ) you reach a point where you want to quickly install and uninstall Powershell from the command line. Thus, the following two scripts.

First to install;

#!/usr/bin/env bash

file=`ls powershell*`
[ -z "$file" ] && echo "Cannot find powershell installer" || sudo installer -pkg ${file} -target /

Then to uninstall;

#!/usr/bin/env bash

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/powershell /usr/local/microsoft/powershell

You can name these whatever you want (I chose install-powershell.sh and uninstall-powershell.sh respectively) and remember to set their permissions respectively. Make sure the install script is in the same directory with the the Powershell dmg file, otherwise you can run the uninstall script from anywhere.
