Multiple workers in windows


When running julia from cygwin I can write
Julia -p 4
to start it with 4 workers. How can I run 4 workers in Julia directly from the windows program (using the short-cut)


Just use addprocs


bin/julia.exe can also be run directly and should accept that argument.


Assuming that julia.exe is in your Windows PATH, you can create a new file on Desktop named Juliap4.bat, for example, with the following content:

julia.exe -p4

Now, you can double-click on this file to open Julia with 4 workers. If julia.exe is not included in your system’s PATH or you have multiple installations of Julia and you need a specific version, replace julia.exe above with the full path to your desired executable.
