Distributed arrays for Julia.

Documentation Build Status


DistributedArrays.jl uses the stdlib Distributed to implement a Global Array interface. A DArray is distributed across a set of workers. Each worker can read and write from its local portion of the array and each worker has read-only access to the portions of the array held by other workers.


The package can be installed with the Julia package manager. From the Julia REPL, type ] to enter the Pkg REPL mode and run:

pkg> add DistributedArrays

Or, equivalently, via the Pkg API:

julia> import Pkg; Pkg.add("DistributedArrays")
