I have been using the JLD package for quite some time (since 0.4) to save and checkpoint my data that is shared between Linux and Windows. Right now, neither JLD nor JLD2 is working for Julia 0.7 (Windows). I suppose I could open an issue, but I’m noticing that neither of these packages has been updated for months, so maybe the plan is to abandon JLD and switch to a new data storage format? Can someone advise me about the recommended platform-independent data format for 0.7?
In case any of the package maintainers is reading this, here are the errors I obtained (0.7.0-alpha, downloaded today; packages tried today).
Pkg.add("JLD") the following error occurred:
┌ Error: Error building `Homebrew`; see log file for further info
By the way, could some helpful reader tell me which log file this message refers to?
Following the Pkg.add statement, I tried
Pkg.test("JLD") and got the following error:
┌ Error: Error building `CodecZlib`; see log file for further info
(Same log file?) Then I received hundreds of warnings and this error:
ERROR: LoadError: LoadError: UndefVarError: SimpleVector not defined
Then I tried
Pkg.add("JLD2"), which seemed to work, but
Pkg.test("JLD2") gave dozens of warnings plus this error:
ERROR: LoadError: LoadError: syntax: local variable name "x" conflicts with an argument
