Build status

Development repository for the Statistics standard library (stdlib) that ships with Julia.

Using the development version of Statistics.jl

If you want to develop this package, do the following steps:

  • Clone the repo anywhere.
  • In line 2 of the Project.toml file (the line that begins with uuid = ...), modify the UUID, e.g. change the 107 to 207.
  • Change the current directory to the Statistics repo you just cloned and start julia with julia --project.
  • import Statistics will now load the files in the cloned repo instead of the Statistics stdlib.
  • To test your changes, simply do include("test/runtests.jl").

If you need to build Julia from source with a git checkout of Statistics, then instead use make DEPS_GIT=Statistics when building Julia. The Statistics repo is in stdlib/Statistics, and created initially with a detached HEAD. If you're doing this from a pre-existing Julia repository, you may need to make clean beforehand.
