I think it'd be cool if a case-clause could be a fn, and if it is, and calling it on the case-arg returns true, then it matches.
but maybe there should be a special sort of case for this called fncase or something.
>Hopefully someone will find time to take the best of these two Lisp dialects and create a new language in the future that rethinks "brevity" in terms of the ideas behind Clojure.
I'm curious which particular ideas you're talking about? I've used both and I don't know what clojure brings to the table that arc really needs, besides the stuff that arc will certainly get anyway, like libraries, some kind of module system, and facilities for performance tuning. (Although I think clojure could use some better libraries, too :)
whoops, I forgot about the formatting and now it's too late to edit.
Maybe my original problem wasn't important then. Also it seems like your first problem means there should be more parens for disambiguation. "x/@(y)/z" or "x/@((funcall))/z" etc. "add more parens" always seems too easy to be right, though :)
Are you going to fix this and other small bugs in the tar or are we just going to patch them on the fly? If the plan is to patch maybe we need a thread with patches - so people can get up and running fast.
Personally I think using Anarki is fast, straightforward and community friendly... So that may be my choice in the end when arc3/mz372 has some time to stabilize.
Is there a reason you are avoiding source control?
