Just wonder about could we’ve had (defn f |a b| (+ a b)) ? a vector is definetly better now 🙂 btw, @alexmiller are there other stories you’ve heard/read about historical design choices?


There is a special symbol syntax around | on clr target. Not sure if it's about Magic/Mage or ClojureCLR itself

| has been reserved as an escaped symbol name delimiter (ala CL), like how clr is using it

FYI, old jira links now redirect to their equivalent page in the new jira

I am working on making the old jira available via an alternate url in case someone needs reports or anything else from it, still wip
