abstract syntax tree (AST) of a Julia expression. It uses the
package to do the visualization.
The package is designed to be used within the IJulia notebook.
The simplest usage is
@tree <EXPRESSION>, where
<EXPRESSION> represents any
Julia expression, for example
@tree x^2 + y^2
which gives the following output:
See this notebook for usage examples.
You will need to have
LaTeX installed on your system, and install the
