I AM NOT COMPLAINING. I AM MERELY WONDERING.
I have seen a couple of messages about slow package adding/compiling/using times. Why is ‘using DataFrames’ so slow? (i.e., not the first time when using it, so presumably DataFrames has already been compiled at least to an intermediate stage and saved to disk somewhere already).
I am on a real high-end computer here, and ‘using DataFrames’ still takes me 10 seconds under 0.6.2. I suspect that it can easily take 20 seconds on something slower.
I know that DataFrames relies on many packages , but this still seems like a painfully slow start.
using so slow because the first time it only compiles to jit and there is a latter final compilation (from jit?) that takes so long? could something closer to the final compiled code be saved? will the
using DataFrames speed up in 1.0, or will this be a long-term problem?
