A collection of modules providing syntax and utility functions inspired by Clojure.
Currently the only module provided by this egg is clojurian-syntax.
clojurian-syntax[syntax] (doto val (proc args ...) ...)
Inserts val as the first argument of each (proc args ...) clause (i.e. right after proc). Returns val. This is useful e.g. for mutating a record on initialization.
(define boolean-vector (doto (make-vector 100) (vector-fill! #t 0 50) (vector-fill! #f 50))) => (define boolean-vector (let ((vec (make-vector 100))) (vector-fill! vec #t 0 50) (vector-fill! vec #f 50) vec))[syntax] (-> val (proc args ...) ...)
[syntax] (->* val (proc args ...) ...)
Inserts val as the first argument of the first (proc args ...) clause. The resulting form is then inserted as the first argument of the following proc form and so on. This is known as the thrush combinator. The starred version (->*) is multi value aware, i.e. each form's return values are spliced into the argument list of the successing form.
Single value example:
(-> 10 (- 2) (/ 5) (* 3)) => (* (/ (- 10 2) 5) 3)
Multi value example:
(->* (values 1 2) (list)) => (receive args (values 1 2) (apply list args))[syntax] (->> val (proc args ...) ...)
[syntax] (->>* val (proc args ...) ...)
Works just like -> and ->* only that the forms are inserted at the end of each successive clause's argument list.
(->> (iota 10) (map add1) (fold + 0) (print)) => (print (fold + 0 (map add1 (iota 10))))
