I’m using julia 1.5.3. This question is based on my curiosity of how julia works and not something that’s affecting my work.
I have several modules that I’ve written myself, and they in turn use some modules from the public registry. After I call
precompile on my modules, I notice that there are multiple files in each module’s compile directory, but they all start with the same prefix. eg:
ubuntu@8b38e699432d:~/.julia/compiled/v1.5$ ls -l DataFrames/ total 16632 -r--r--r-- 1 ubuntu ubuntu 5678341 Mar 16 03:46 AR9oZ_LwnbX.ji -r--r--r-- 1 ubuntu ubuntu 5693325 Mar 16 03:37 AR9oZ_op3w6.ji -r--r--r-- 1 ubuntu ubuntu 5655448 Mar 16 03:52 AR9oZ_sVtHX.ji
My guess is that these are incremental compiles. For each module I’ve precompiled, if it uses different features of
DataFrames, then those additional features are compiled into the new
My questions are quite straightforward:
- Why the multiple filenames?
- Why do they all have the same prefix?
- How are the files named?
Thanks in advance for any insights.
