Hi all,I'm curious. Has anyone in the Chicken community looked at Clojure - the new Lisp-like language that ties in to the JVM? I spent some time with it last week and found it not quite ready for prime time. (I think it's more Java than Lisp)
It got me thinking, however. Java is a complex abomination, but it does have one thing in it's favor - the JVM and the endless libraries you'll find there. Whenever I tell people how great Chicken Scheme is they always come back to me with the same agrument they use against Lisp - it just doesn't have the breadth of libraries needed in the real world. There are a lot of eggs, but not some key ones (PNG and GTK for instance)
How do we change this and compete with the ideas behind Clojure and Scala? Scheme is a much better language.
