;; An implmementation of the problem of solving dimensional analysis functionally
;; as described in Peter Henderson's Functional Programming and applications...
;; .. wait for it.. in Clojure!
(ns clj.dimensional-analysis
(:require [schema.core :as s]
[instaparse.core :as insta]))
;; The solution to the problem has been defined from a programming and a testing point of view,
;; where the program is broken down into functions hence making testing a lot more easier since
;; we only have to test and check for their core logic. This is a concept which is taught to the
;; novice programmer(myself, LUL) through the text. We can try and understand it as a conveyor belt
;; on which the data is operated upon by various "functions" and then the final output is produced.
;; It then becomes intuitive to test for and design in cases where you know what "tools" you already
;; have to operate on your data.
;; Now, the author starts with the definition of dimensions, quantities and dimensional expressions.
;; Definitons:
;; Dimension: Quantities in the real world are associated with dimensions. They are usually expressed in
;; terms of fundamental units -> M(Mass), Length(L) and Time(T).
;; Quantity: Can be a real life quantity which has a value. It's dimensions can be descibed in terms of M, L, T.
;; Dimensional expressions: Expressions on which dimensional analysis can be applied on. They contain quantities
;; with operations on them.
;; Reference:
;; Let us define Schemas for all the quantities we will be dealing with.
;; Why are schemas useful in functional programming?
;; Pure functions: FREE OF SIDE EFFECTS. In layman terms, they do what they are supposed to, and no mo.
;; Hence it is pivotal to understand what the function inputs and corresponding outputs to understand its behaviour.
;; It would have been useful if we had types instead, but .. you know, whatever.
;; Schema also helps in runtime data validation and checking if the function "contract" is not broken.
;; Defining schemas!
