Julia can work with other human-readable file formats through specialized packages:
- For JSON, use the JSON package. The parse method converts JSON strings into dictionaries, and the json method turns any Julia object into a JSON string.
- For XML, use the LightXML package.
- For YAML, use the YAML package.
- For HDF5 (a common format for scientific data), use the HDF5 package.
- For working with Windows INI files, use the IniFile package.
