This is compiler for the Clojure programming language that targets C as a backend.

don't report errors you should be good.
Make sure you're using Leiningen 2 - older versions of Leiningen won't work. Run the testsuite:
All tests should pass.
Note: these are very preliminary instructions. They will change!
iOS requires a custom build of the Boehm-Damers-Weiser garbage collector library. There's an included script that does most of the work at building it as an armv7 static lib. The script does need more work (error checking!) - and it will be extended to build iOS Simulator libs as well (packaged as fat libs).
Currently, libgc tries to pull in a current crt lib which isn't supported under iOS. To work around this, the following needs to be done once (for now):
cd /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneOS5.1.sdk/usr/lib ln -s crt1.3.1.o crt1.10.6.o
After the above is done, do the following:
cd run/clojurec wget http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Hans_Boehm/gc/gc_source/gc-7.2c.tar.gz tar -xvzf gc-7.2c.tar.gz ./bootstrap.sh
Note: 'bootstrap.sh' assumes that your running the latest stable release of Xcode and that it's installed under /Applications/Xcode.app. If it's not installed there, please update the 'XCODE_HOME' var in bootstrap.sh.
The generated arm7 libgc static lib (and headers) are installed under libgc.ios in the same directory.
Building for iOS is currently a two step process. The first step requires creating the cljc.c and cljc.m files through clojurec.core. One way of doing this is by starting a repl, switching to the clojurec.core ns and executing the 'for iOS build' expression in the comment block at the end of src/clj/clojurec/core.clj. If all goes well, this will spit out newly created cljc.(m|c) files. I do this step with emacs and swank.
Step 2 is loading up the sample Xcode project under run/clojurec. Select an iOS Device target (note: simulator GC libraries aren't yet included) and then press the 'Run' button to compile, link and run the 'app' on your iOS device. In the debug window, you should see it print "5", if using the current sample expression form in the comment block.
