Thanks 🙏

just waiting for cloudfront to distribute it


Has anybody here run into the need for labelled loop-`recur`, where you could recur out into an enclosing loop? This would be a fantastic fit for tight interpreter-loops and - at least on js - already supported by labelled blocks / breaks ...


... also, it's not easily done via macro ...

@bendlas there actually is a ticket and a patch for this that we are going to at least look at again for 1.11


awesome! I'll make sure to review and vote on it 🙂

looking for the link...


Thank you very much!

there have been a few times when I've wanted the named recur, but not many (and usually I take it as a sign that my code needs to be broken up more, but sometimes that's hard when doing perf stuff and closing over a lot of primitives etc)


Nice. I saw someone posting here on Slack a week or two ago with some code where they want to recur out one level and it was hard to structure their code cleanly with just the current model of loop/`recur`.
