If you want to reproduce our results, you’ll need to use roughly the same versions of every language toolchain that we use.
The code repository has an exported Conda environment that will setup most languages. Even if you don’t want to use Conda, reading the file should make it clear what versions we employed. Some of our languages are not available on Conda or require some extra configuration. The table below will help you set them up:
|D||d||Manual install (we have dmd)|
|C++||cpp||System (we have g++ 9.2.0)|
|R||r||Manually install (we use R 4.2)|
|Bash||sh||System (we have bash 4.2)|
|Perl||pl||Conda and |
|Ruby||rb||Conda and |
|Swift||swift||Manual install (We use Swift 5.8)|
|Racket||rkt||Manual install (We use Racket 8.2)|
- Manually install Scala in the Conda environment, which includes its own JDK.
- R is almost certainly available on Conda as well. But, we happened to have it installed.
- The D toolchain on conda-forge is presently broken. Spack works (
spack install dmd).
