A Clojure library using first class functions as a synchronisation mechanism based on go-cache
The storage is provided by a transient hash-map which is exposed over a channel, meaning all operations a serialized and therefore don't require locking. Only one thread is ever operating on the map even if the handle is passed to many.
(let [handle (func-cache)] (cache-empty? handle) ;; true (cache-insert handle :foo "bar") (cache-get handle :foo) ;; "bar" (cache-empty? handle) ;; false (cache-destroy handle)) ;; close the handle
This is by no means ment to be used in any real application, as it will be significantly slower than using the clojure builtin transactions. It was done to explore a concept of using functions as messages, which can be a very powerful idea.
