0:57 mhinchey: slime fails to start with the latest clojure. Anyone else having a problem?

1:23 yangsx: mhichey: how latest is it?

1:29 tWip: mhinchey: I had the same problem

1:29 mhinchey: yangsx: svn 1057

1:29 tWip: Complained about *1 symbol on core.clj:124

1:30 mhinchey: tWip: hmm, I wrote that part, but it does work with the latest clojure

1:30 tWip: oh ok. I'm using the latest released 20080916

1:30 mhinchey: my problem is I think caused by Rich's new ## changes

1:31 I'll post to the group

1:32 tWip: but the *1 thing should work on latest svn rev clojure? I'll need to try that then

1:33 yangsx: mhinchey: I just updated to svn 1057 and you're right

1:36 lisppaste8: yangsx pasted "clojure svn 1057 failed with slime" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68237

1:37 mhinchey: yangsx: yes

1:38 tWip: yes, *1, *2, *3 are supported like clojure's internal repl, the previous 3 input commands

1:38 tWip: nice

1:41 mhinchey: tWip: I think most people use clojure from svn or github rather than the releases, so other projects like swank stay current with the svn clojure

1:46 tWip: yeah, but I like releases... especially at work if I need to depend on a version :)

1:47 yangsx: mhinchey: I checkout svn 1056 and that works fine with slime. You're right, svn 1057 is the culprit.

1:48 mhinchey: yangsx: thanks, I posted to the group

1:49 lisppaste8: yangsx annotated #68237 with "changes in svn 1057 breaks swank-clojure" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68237#1

1:56 scgilardi: http://github.com/mikehinchey/swank-clojure/tree/master has a fork of jochu's swank for clj that supports *1, *2, *3

1:58 mhinchey: scgilardi: jochu merged that into his

1:58 scgilardi: oh cool

2:00 temporarily reverting the ## reader macro should work for now, right?

2:01 mhinchey: yes

3:06 lisppaste8: schlarf pasted "eval and refs" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68240

3:07 schlarf: can someone help me with that? i want to be able to change a and then just re-eval c tog et the new value(30)

3:08 hoeck: schlarf: why `eval'?

3:10 schlarf: (dosync (ref-set a 3))

3:11 instead of (def a 3)

3:12 schlarf: hoeck: i am writing an object-system, iw ant to be able to define a method as a list then callt he method later and have it re-lookup the variables(the objects attributes)

3:13 ref-set doesnt work by itself

3:15 ah i see

3:20 hoeck: you need to wrap ref-set in a transaction with (dosync ..)

3:27 schlarf: yes

3:39 if i have a reference number, how can i get its value? i mean it is not deffed just like (ref 4)

3:39 then i have clojure.lang.Ref@14ce5eb

3:39 and @ at that doesnt work...

5:57 how can i replace a symbol ina list with something from another list?

5:58 like i ahve (* a b) and a list of (a -> func(a) b -> func(b)) and i want eval(* a b) to replace a aiwth func(a) when ti is run

6:01 parth_m: schlarf: If I understand you correctly, is this what you want?

6:02 user[1] => (map #(% {:a 1 :b 2} %) [:a :b :c :d])

6:02 (1 2 :c :d)

6:02 Instead of list (a -> func(a) b -> func(b)) I have used a map {:a 1 :b 2}

6:13 schlarf: yes thanks think it is

9:54 tayssir: Hi! When installing Clojure with Slime integration, should I ignore the readme files in the Jochu-* directories and just do what it says on the Clojure wiki?

9:55 There's all sorts of autoload stuff in the Jochu-* readme files, which aren't mentioned on the wiki.

10:53 Hi, where do I find the clojure.jar file, if I compiled it from SVN using Mven? The closest I see is clojure-lang-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar.

10:53 H4ns: tayssir: that is it.

10:53 alec: I use that one - it ends up in target/

10:54 tayssir: Ah, thanks!

10:55 rhickey: http://www.pragprog.com/titles/shcloj/programming-clojure

10:56 gnuvince: Nice!

10:56 tWip: very nice!

10:56 H4ns: cool!

10:57 gnuvince: http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/76dfm/upcoming_book_from_the_pragmatic_programmers/

10:58 tWip: I don't get the cover image though :P

11:00 H4ns: seems pretty clear!

11:00 * H4ns hands rhickey the purple robe

11:02 rhickey: heh

11:09 tayssir: Cathedral vs. bazaar, maybe?

11:10 gnuvince: I don't think the PP book covers have any real significance

11:10 The Ruby on Rails book 2nd edition has a skater boy on it

11:11 http://www.pragprog.com/titles/rails2/agile-web-development-with-rails

11:14 tayssir: I suspect that has to do with the soul grinding that skaters do on stair-rails.

11:14 cmvkk: wouldn't it be because agility is required to skate well?

11:15 rhickey: I like the Clojure cover better, seems more aspirational

11:16 vs a picture of a hasp or something

11:16 solkis: reminds me of of a fractal almost

11:17 Chouser: I see parens

11:17 fogus: 200 pgs! My kind of book.

11:17 gnuvince: Clojure has been out for what, a year now?

11:18 rhickey: just about

11:18 gnuvince: It sure is nice to see books already being written about it.

11:20 solkis: rhickey: this must be satisfying to see after your years or hard work... congrats!

11:21 rhickey: I count the release as Oct 16, 2007, when I sent an email to the jFli and Foil lists, picked up by Planet Lisp, then Reddit, and the snowball's been running downhill ever since

11:22 Chouser: oo, so it's almost the anniversary. Party at my house!

11:23 * Chouser makes this offer assuming nobody lives close enough to bother.

11:23 gnuvince: Chouser: where is that?

11:23 Chouser: Fort Wayne, Indiana

11:23 gnuvince: Yeah, kinda of a long drive for me.

11:24 Chouser: Where are you?

11:24 gnuvince: Montreal

11:24 Chouser: Ah, indeed.

11:24 gnuvince: It's about 10 hours to get to Sandusky, OH.

11:42 rhickey: interesting watching Erlangers muse about how to handle the transactional nature of the Clojure ant sim: http://groups.google.com/group/erlang-questions/browse_frm/thread/7b9b002368a378dd?hl=en#

11:46 arohner: wow that is convoluted

11:48 rhickey: it will be interesting to see where they end up

11:49 arohner: yeah

11:55 Chouser: that page is having a lot of trouble loading for me

11:55 rhickey: Chouser: which one?

11:55 Chouser: the google group erlang link you posted

11:56 hm, all google groups pages?

11:57 huh. some kind of browser issue. personal problem...

11:57 alec: happened to me too

11:57 ended up loading after a while

11:58 cemerick: yeah, groups is having issues

11:58 Chouser: I tried in a fresh firefox profile and it came right up.

12:19 arohner: lisppaste8: url

12:19 lisppaste8: To use the lisppaste bot, visit http://paste.lisp.org/new/clojure and enter your paste.

12:23 arohner pasted "list vs. '" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68264

12:24 arohner: in that paste, can someone please help me understand why #4 is different from #5?

12:25 hircus: arohner: quote (either (quote foo) or 'foo) means take the expression literally

12:25 so System/currentTimeMills is never called in #5

12:26 rhickey: user=> (list [1 2 (System/currentTimeMillis)])

12:26 ([1 2 1223655773276])

12:26 user=> '([1 2 (System/currentTimeMillis)])

12:26 ([1 2 (System/currentTimeMillis)])

12:26 arohner: ok, I don't know why I got it stuck in my head that quote == list

12:27 list evaluates its arguments

12:27 hircus: arohner: well, it works until you try sticking variables and/or expressions :)

12:27 does clojure have quasiquotes like Scheme, I wonder

12:27 so you can do `([1 2 ,(System/currentTimeMillis)])

12:27 rhickey: one of the nice things about Clojure is that you have evaluated vectors as an alternative to (back)quoted lists as data

12:28 lisppaste8: alec annotated #68264 with "fix #5" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68264#1

12:29 rhickey: and vectors are definitely preferred for that - I'd much rather see [1 2 3] than '(1 2 3)

12:29 arohner: in this case, I'm trying not to evaluate things until later

12:30 so I'd like to delay that function call

12:30 is there a better way to do that?

12:31 rhickey: arohner: are you writing a macro?

12:32 arohner: I think I have to

12:33 TommyOnMac: hi

12:33 arohner: TommyOnMac: hi

12:35 TommyOnMac: Are there any more Freemind lovers in here?

12:36 I found a couple of mind maps for C# and Python, and wanted one for Clojure

12:36 ( http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/extensions/freemind/flashwindow.php?startCollapsedToLevel=3&initLoadFile=/wiki/images/e/ee/CSharp_2_WebLinks2.mm&mm_title=C%23%202.0%20Computer%20Language%20-%20Contents )

12:36 sorry for the long url

12:36 I've entered "The Reader" into Freemind just to see how it would look like

12:36 It's Clojure.png and .mm in here http://groups.google.com/group/clojure/files

12:36 what do you guys think?

12:37 WOuldn't it be lovely to have the whole language / api in that form?

12:40 cemerick: I've always been very intrigued with the mind mapping concept, but I've never liked any of the tools.

12:40 TommyOnMac: Freemind is very nice

12:40 it's non-bloated and to the point

12:41 cemerick: Visualizations can obviously be very helpful in some circumstances,

12:41 TommyOnMac: perfect for taking notes during a meeting

12:41 cemerick: It's hard to beat a whiteboard :-)

12:42 TommyOnMac: it's hard to save a whiteboard

12:42 and mail it

12:42 :)

12:42 cemerick: true, true; I've been using http://qipit.com lately for that. A hacky solution, but good in a pinch.

12:46 TommyOnMac: map enter to sibling and tab to child

12:47 scottj: TommyOnMac: looks good.

12:47 arohner: is `(~foo) inside of a macro equivalent to '(foo) outside of a macro?

12:48 TommyOnMac: rtfmm :)

12:50 arohner: I've tried

12:51 I have an existing function that takes & arguments

12:51 scottj: arohner: Does ~foo evaluate foo?

12:52 arohner: I want to write a macro that takes & arguments, and saves the arguments in a datastructure, and then later apply the arguments to the existing function

12:52 cemerick: arohner: I've always ended up using (quote foo) inside a macro; I've not been able to puzzle out a more succinct way to emit '(foo)

12:52 ...which is probably due to my less-than-stellar skillz :-)

12:53 or, sorry, ~(quote foo)

12:53 TommyOnMac: instead of one fat macro, can you divide it into smaller ones?

12:54 arohner: cemerick: shouldn't it be (quote ~foo)?

12:54 TommyOnMac: right now, it's only two lines. :-) my trouble is coming from trying to understand macros, quote and quasiquote

12:55 TommyOnMac: and you tried macroexpand?

12:55 cemerick: arohner: ah, right; (quote ~foo) => 'foo, (quote ~foo) => '(foo)

13:12 leafw: hi all. How can one convert a string such as "#^ints" to a proper symbol to be used for introducing a primitive type hint?

13:13 I know there is a way to do it, just can't recall it -- clojure's library is very horizontal

13:15 rhickey: leafw: putting #^ in the string sets you off on the wrong path

13:16 leafw: good to know . How would you do it? I am trying to make a macro that takes any array type and can process it natively

13:16 int[] float[] short[] byte[]

13:17 I thought of declaring a table of class vs type decoration, and then use it accordingly in the body of the macro

13:17 rhickey: leafw: you've looked at amap and areduce?

13:18 leafw: reading doc now

13:19 arohner: if I have a macro take takes a rest arg, is there a way to get the contents of the rest arg into the macro body?

13:19 rhickey: look at the code too, both are macros that manipulate primitive arrays generically

13:19 leafw: the problem here is that I don't know the type of the array being passed. Comes from an ugly library, the method in question returnin an Object, so one has to either know it or guess it

13:19 thanks, will look at the amap/.areduce definitions

13:19 rhickey: arohner: sure, in a syntax-quote, ~@

13:21 leafw: does amap consider the problem of signed byte ? I.e. a byte[] contains values from -128 to 127, so adding -5 to it is wrong if the math considers ints. One has to 0xff the byte first to an int, then (byte ...) it back.

13:21 but one doesn't want to do that for, say, floats

13:21 arohner: rhickey: thanks!

13:21 leafw: sp the body of the function to write has to know the type, to be able to fix these issues

13:22 rhickey: leafw: that's not about the mapping but the operation, and right now byte arrays are second class vs. int/long/float/double

13:22 leafw: byte arrays are second class? What do you mean?

13:23 byte arrays are my primary data type, for imaging (8-bit images in ImageJ)

13:23 rhickey: there's inlining for the other 4

13:23 leafw: but not for byte[], urgh

13:24 you are missing short[] as well.

13:24 another very much used data type in Image/j (16-bit images).

13:26 so I think I'm going to go ahead and try thathorrible approach of mine. How would one generate a type decorator in place?

13:26 you sid strings is not the way to go

13:30 I know there is a function to create symbols in place, just forgot its name and I can't find it in the docs. If someone recalls its name I'd appreciate it.

13:31 gnuvince: (gensym)?

13:31 rhickey: (doc symbol)

13:31 leafw: no, gensym is to create unqieurly named symbols

13:31 uniquely

13:32 nice, so (symbol "#^ints") works.

13:33 rhickey: no #^ is not part of the symbol when used - #^x y === #^{:tag x} y

13:34 user=> '#^x y

13:34 y

13:34 user=> (meta '#^x y)

13:34 {:tag x}

13:35 leafw: hum

13:35 Chouser: why does the #^ have to be quoted?

13:36 rhickey: #^ tells the reader, make the next thing read the metadata for the following thing

13:36 Chouser: we're talking about macros - just trying to show what the reader reads given forms

13:36 leafw: still the question remains, then, on how would one generate the '#^x for meta to do it ...

13:37 Chouser: I would like to automate type decoration for #^bytes and #^shorts

13:37 Chouser: (meta (with-meta {} {:tag Integer}))

13:38 rhickey: leafw: you need to understand code is data

13:38 #^bytes isn't a thing in itself

13:38 leafw: rhickey: I admit I still don't get it

13:38 #^bytes is a metadata key, IIUC

13:39 rhickey: user=> '#^x y

13:39 y

13:39 user=> (meta '#^x y)

13:39 {:tag x}

13:39 you need to understand this^^

13:39 Chouser: I continue to have trouble groking metadata on vars vs. values, and I'm not sure if that's related to quoting the #^x or not.

13:39 rhickey: given #^x y the reader produces a symbol

13:39 leafw: ok

13:39 rhickey: y

13:39 Chouser: I just thought I'd ask questions since leafw brought it up. :-)

13:40 rhickey: with the metadata {:tag x}

13:40 leafw: so (meta '#^x y) is calling meta on the var y created with metadata #^x

13:41 rhickey: if you wanted to programmatically do the same, you could say (with-meta 'y {:tag 'x}):

13:41 user=> (with-meta 'y {:tag 'x})

13:41 y

13:41 user=> (meta (with-meta 'y {:tag 'x}))

13:41 {:tag x}

13:41 leafw: aha

13:41 why is y quoted?

13:42 rhickey: macros don't produce output for consumption by the reader - they produce data for consumption by the compiler

13:42 leafw: I see, with-meta creates a symbol with name the first argument

13:42 humno

13:42 rhickey: no, with-meta returns a version of whatever it was passed, in this case the symbol y, with the metadata provided

13:43 leafw: ok

13:43 Chouser: ah, is the ' in '#^x y effectively quoting the whole thing?

13:43 leafw: this fails: {:tag '#^ints}

13:44 I must confess I am rather confused.

13:44 is even possible at all what I am trying to do?

13:45 rhickey: Chouser: yes ' == quote the next thing read and return it, #^ == add the next thing read as metadata to the following thing read and return that

13:45 leafw: so #^ is a macro?

13:45 Chouser: (meta '#^ints y) ==> {:tag ints}

13:45 (meta (with-meta 'y {:tag 'ints})) ==> {:tag ints}

13:46 rhickey: leafw: yes, see http://clojure.org/reader

13:46 leafw: I see, I was confising then #^ints with ints. The first is the #^ "macro" that passes its attched hint to the next thing

13:46 s/confising/confusing/

13:46 rhickey: a reader macro

13:47 leafw: thanks rhickey

13:47 rhickey: yw

14:11 lisppaste8: leafw pasted "type hints" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68270

14:12 leafw: just pasted some code ... each element works separately, but together they don't

14:13 particularly, (println (get table-types (.getClass ip))) works, but fails when run in the 'add' function

14:14 comments appreciated.

14:14 rhickey: leafw: without a macro, there's no way to convey the hints to the compiler - attributing values at runtime has no effect

14:14 leafw: rhickey: ok

14:14 so it needs to be a macro

14:15 I am still not comfortable with macros, so I tried defn first. Thanks for th e tip.

14:18 Chouser: leafw: have you read any kind of tutorial on writing macros?

14:18 leafw: just changing defn to defmacro should work in this very simple case. but it doesn't: the error: Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No matching field found: getPixels for class clojure.lang.PersistentList

14:18 I did. I am familiar with `, ~ and ~@

14:19 but the whole thin just did click yet, obviously

14:19 Chouser: ok. On Lisp was what convinced me macros were king, and also taught me how to write them

14:19 that book's available free online

14:19 leafw: gigamonkeys did it for me.

14:21 cemerick: Yeah, On Lisp is the bible in that area.

14:21 leafw: (defmacro [x] (println x)) works, but in the pasted case, it parses the argument ip as a PersistentList

14:21 cemerick: If you find a sympathetic printer, you can get the online PDF bound up.

14:21 leafw: I read on screen with the eee or a iLiad from iRex

14:21 the latter is pretty nic: allows for notes to be written on pdfs.

14:23 Chouser: I think what you're trying to do is made trickier by the fact that type hints (and other metadata) aren't printed.

14:23 rhickey: Chouser: how so?

14:25 leafw: any ideas why clojure thinks that ip should be a PersistentList? It's clearly not -- it's an Object, of type byte[], float[] ...

14:25 sorry, an ImageProcessor ... whose .getPixels returns those byte[], float[] ... as Object

14:26 alec: leafw: code in a defmacro that's not inside an interpolated list is run at macroexpand-time

14:26 leafw: ok

14:26 so it's a list.

14:26 thanks

14:27 alec: so if you have (defmacro x [y] (println y)) or whatever, at macroexpansion time, it will print the argument

14:27 Chouser: The paste.lisp.org captcha cracks me up

14:27 lisppaste8: Chouser pasted "type hints don't print" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68271

14:27 leafw: alec: I understand now why it was printing not im my repl but on the terminal.

14:28 Chouser: oh.

14:29 (defmacro th [] `(with-meta 'y {:tag 'ints}))

14:30 rhickey: (binding [*print-meta* true] (prn (macroexpand '(th))))

14:31 could provide repl binding so you could do: (set! *print-meta* true) and have it stick

14:31 Chouser: oh

14:32 oh!

14:32 leafw: rhickey: shorts and bytes are not proper type hints for arrays?

14:32 arohner: I like that

14:32 Chouser: my binding was gone by the time the repl printed. duh.

14:32 leafw: in my macroexpansion they appear as (quote user/bytes) ad (quote user/shorts)

14:34 lisppaste8: leafw annotated #68270 with "second round" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68270#1

14:35 Chouser: I don't think you want to have your whole table-types in every expansion

14:36 leafw: Chouser: no, I don't. This is just a test. Which fails.

14:36 Chouser: :-)

14:36 leafw: java.lang.IncompatibleClassChangeError (native_arrays.clj:0)

14:36 the line number doesn't help, certainly. The other error with the file name in it is line 14: the macro invocation

14:36 Chouser: do you have a working example of what you want your macro to produce?

14:37 leafw: once I have the type, I can decide to do special things in generic functions that would apply kernels to the image

14:37 such as 0xff each byte before doing math, but not shorts or floats

14:38 Chouser: ok, but I would highly recommend writing up one complete example of what the macro might produce, and make sure that's working.

14:38 leafw: I could do it all with reflection or duplicating and so, but I'd rather not: very large images.

14:38 Chouser: then move on to writing a macro that can produce that

14:39 leafw: the part that needs testing is how to assign types on the fly, not the other one.

14:40 I'mnot even sure that bytes and shorts are valid array flags. I think they are not, for what rhickey said as being "second class".

14:41 Chouser: shorts and bytes appear to be valid hints

14:42 based on Compiler.java, around line 779

14:43 so do you want to write "generic" functions that work on boxed objects, but then in places have an "if" and do something different for a particular type?

14:49 leafw: Chouser: yes, I want to do so. Just because byte[] is such an aweful type to work with, and just because my byte[] arrays are so large. I wish they were signed, but changing tht is beyond my control.

14:51 I'm reading the Compiler.java, even chars and booleans are supported

14:59 lisppaste8: rhickey pasted "mcast" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/68273

15:00 rhickey: mcast is a macro that adds a type hint to an expression

15:00 leafw: which needs a very recent svn checkout right :)

15:00 rhickey: no

15:01 leafw: hum, fails to run here

15:01 trunk@1043

15:03 sorry, must be my interpreter. Line by line it works; all pasted together, it doesn't.

16:45 solkis: I just documented a detailed, step-by-step procedure for getting clojure, emacs and slime/swank setup on ubuntu here >> http://riddell.us/clojure

16:46 I thought about putting in on the wiki but its pretty specific to ubuntu and some of this information was already covered.

16:46 rhickey: you could stick a link on the wiki

16:46 solkis: It contains some detailed steps and then demonstrates the ants.clj script.

16:47 rhickey: will do

16:48 I'm a newb to fp and clojure and it is definitely at that level.

16:49 achim_p: hi! why is the use of eval generally frowned upon in lisp circles? i'm quite a lisp n00b, admittedly, but isn't eval quintessential to the whole code=data thing?

16:50 rhickey: macros are the quintessential code is data, eval usually indicates not grokking macros, other than when writing a repl or such

16:53 tayssir: Eval is typically viewed as too powerful a hammer; typically there's simpler ways to do what you want.

16:54 Or at least more readable ones.

16:58 achim_p: okay, thanks! i've yet to get a feel for this. not that i was tempted to use it yet, but whenever i see it mentioned, it's followed by a statement like "of course, we don't use it", and i wondered why that is

17:20 tayssir: Is the Slime setup info at all current on the wiki page? I'm thinking of replacing it. But maybe it works for Windows people; I'm only testing on MacOS.

17:21 danlarkin: tayssir: what didn't work for you?

17:22 tayssir: Well, I suspect you need to require 'clojure-auto and 'swank-clojure-autoload. And maybe needing to create the file clojure.cmd is outdated, since 'swank-clojure-autoload seems to handle that for me.

17:24 It didn't work when I tried translating it to unix; I found the READMEs in jochu's stuff more accurate.

17:24 (At least for my setup.)

17:50 solkis: tayssir: I just created a tutorial today at: http://riddell.us/clojure

17:50 and linked to it on the wiki

17:51 tayssir: it's for Ubuntu, and it's pretty basic but it works for me

17:55 tayssir: solkis: Cool, nice walkthrough!

17:56 solkis: tayssir: thanks... I hope it will help some others get started out there, especially those new to *nix

17:57 tayssir: I'm not new to linux but I am to clojure ;-)

17:59 scottj: solkis: just checking, emacs-snapshot-gtk is in the stock ubuntu repositories?

17:59 (I just remember having to add a repository for it once upon a time)

18:00 solkis: scottj: yes, it should be, I tested these steps in a clean vm to be sure

18:00 scottj: ok

18:04 danlarkin: solkis: this is a very nicely formatted walkthrough, good job

18:06 solkis: danlarkin: thanks

18:06 karmazilla: am I suppose to get a ClassCastException on (take 10 (fnseq 1 #(2))) ?

18:07 danlarkin: 2 is not a function

18:09 rhickey: (take 10 (cons 1 (repeat 2)))

18:10 karmazilla: the thing is I want to use fnseq to create a lazy seq from the output of a function

18:10 s/want/am trying to/

18:11 rhickey: what function?

18:12 using fnseq is pretty rare vs lazy-cons

18:12 karmazilla: this is where I'm at: http://pastebin.com/df75b6f5

18:14 rhickey: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Clojure_Programming#Lazy_Fibonacci

18:17 karmazilla: oh... lazy-cons looks much more powerful when recursion enters the picture

18:18 rhickey: yes, and note the seq produced by lazy-cons is already thread-safe

18:18 no need for that atomic stuff

19:29 karmazilla: can I tell the clojure version/revision from the repl?

19:31 retep: anoyone still there? playing around with clojure I'm puzzeld by partial's behaiviour

19:31 (defn add12 (partial + 12))

19:32 throws Don't know how to create ISeq from: Symbol

19:32 java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

19:32 albino: Is Stuart Halloway here?

19:33 karmazilla: retep: def instead of defn

19:33 retep: Oh.

19:33 Yes.

19:33 Of course.

19:34 It's late in germany. Need some sleep. ;-)

19:35 thanks.
