Using "@." in JuliaHub

What is the purpose of using @.?
It says it converts every function call or operator in expr into a "dot call.
What does that do for me?

It turns on “broadcasting”, which basically means that operations will be performed on vectors element-wise. You can check the julia language docs for more information.

Thank you. I am new to looking through the language docs and could not find information on it when typing in “@.” or expr or dot call. Is there something I should have typed in to make the search better?

Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult to search for @. because @ is often treated specially in search queries. There are a couple of sections on @., though, see Mathematical Operations and Elementary Functions · The Julia Language and Functions · The Julia Language
