  1. Import clojure-1.4.0 as lang/clojure.

    ryoon committed
    Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the Java
    Virtual Machine (and the CLR, and JavaScript). It is designed to
    be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and
    interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient
    and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure
    is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet
    remains completely dynamic. Every feature supported by Clojure is
    supported at runtime. Clojure provides easy access to the Java
    frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure
    that calls to Java can avoid reflection.
    
    Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data
    philosophy and a powerful macro system. Clojure is predominantly
    a functional programming language, and features a rich set of
    immutable, persistent data structures. When mutable state is needed,
    Clojure offers a software transactional memory system and reactive
    Agent system that ensure clean, correct, multithreaded designs.
    
    I hope you find Clojure's combination of facilities elegant,
    powerful, practical and fun to use.
