Google AI Challenge in Clojure
This is a sample starter package for the 2010 Google AI Challenge in Clojure. If I get more time I'll update it with more translated example bots or some of my own.
To make it work you'll have to add a jar of Clojure 1.1 (not tested with 1.0 but it should work) in a folder called deps. I've only tested it with the included clj.bat under Cygwin in Windows XP, it should be pretty easy to make it a bash script to work elsewhere.
Running as a Script
To see if your setup works, run this command:
$ java -cp "deps/clojure.jar;." clojure.main MyTronBot.clj -- < maps/empty-room.txt
You can test the sample bot using the provided batch file like this:
$ java -jar engine/Tron.jar maps/empty-room.txt "./clj.bat MyTronBot.clj" "./clj.bat MyTronBot.clj"
To compile the sample bot, you'll need first to create a directory for the generated classes. Then it's a simple matter of calling compile:
$ mkdir classes $ java -cp "deps/clojure.jar;.;classes" clojure.main -e "(compile 'MyTronBot) MyTronBot
After that, it's exactly like running Java classes:
$ java -cp "deps/clojure.jar;classes" MyTronBot < maps/empty-room.txt
I've also provided a batch file to run the class version:
$ java -jar engine/Tron.jar maps/empty-room.txt "./class.bat MyTronBot" "./class.bat MyTronBot"
