I am a newbie so may be doing something stupid, but here is what I’m experiencing.
I just installed JuliaPro 1.2.0-1:
After I start JuliaPro,
- I hit “enter key” in the REPL window and it takes 36 seconds to get a julia prompt.
2 I hit “enter key” again and it takes 7 seconds to get another julia prompt
3 I type “us” followed by “tab key” and it takes 11 seconds for the tab completion to show “using”
4 I type a = 1 “enter key”, it takes 4 seconds to get a response
Once I do the above operations once, subsequently executing them is very fast. But if I exit JuliaPro and restart, all of the above delays are seen all over again.
I also have a standalone Julia 1.2 (downloaded from julialang.org) on my same laptop computer and it doesn’t suffer from this sluggishness, so it isn’t my particular RAM/processor/hard drive/etc.
And finally, one more observation: if I run julia.exe in the bin folder of the JuliaPro installation directly (shows up in a Windows PowerShell window), it also has this sluggish behavior where the first time to do anything is very slow.
Any suggestions on what I can do to speed this up?
