Example

    # crisp
    >> (println "Hello World")
    Hello World
    =>
    >> (def fib (
    ?>   fn [n]
    ?>     (if (< n 2)
    ?>       n
    ?>         (+ (fib (- n 1)) (fib (- n i))))))
    => #<Crisp::Function:0x1005c2500>
    >> (fib 10)
    => 55
    >> (def factorial
    ?>   (fn [n]
    ?>     (loop [cnt n acc 1]
