;;; The author of the above blog post says that his `smt-8` was slow so he re-wrote it in
;;; Common Lisp and got nearly 300x improvement. I wrote some pure Clojure variations
;;; showing much improved performance over the original.
;;; Criterium for benchmarking:

map-alt transducer
View map-alt.clj
;; map-alt is like the map xform but calls the funtions in an alternating order
;; (f i0) (g i1) (h i2) (f i3) ...
;; In other words, map-alt spreads fn calls across elements, whereas (mapcat (juxt ...)) calls all
;; fns on each element.

# Except when project.clj changes (and on first launch), lein is not called.

An infix data-reader
View infix.clj
(ns miner.infix)
;; Inspired by the excellent book "The Joy of Clojure".
;; Converted to be used as a data-reader by Steve Miner. The main change is to preserve
;; the prefix forms rather than calculating the result. Also, the reader gets symbols, not
;; the actual functions.

;; ----------------------------------------------------------------------
;; Converted to Clojure by SEM. Note that there are lots of shadowing and recursive calls in
;; the Clojure code to avoid the mutation in the original code. The Clojure loops are a bit
;; ugly. Not sure if this is the best way to do things. However, the performance is pretty
;; good.

;;; 01/14/14 16:18 by miner -- Steve Miner revised this code to be more idiomatic Clojure.
; Short sidebar: Clojure has a special form for the efficient compilation of tail recursion.
; Something like this would work as a factorial function:
(defn fact2 [n]
(loop [n n acc 1]
(if (zero? n) acc (recur (dec n) (* n acc)))))
; We're not going to discuss `recur` any further as we're imagining a language that doesn't
You can’t perform that action at this time.
