Andy, I just watched your talk and enjoyed it. You make a
comment about 24min in about implementing something like
transiente from Clojure in D. I have some cursory knowledge of
Clojure and what you mean by transient, but no idea how to
implement the concept in D. If it's possible to provide a
simple example, I would be interested.
Hey.... I didn't really have an equivalent of transients in D, it
was more a general statement that there are cases where you can
still get functional purity using mutable state rather than
adhering to a strict functional approach.
So in much the same way as I 'cheat' slightly by using mutable
state in the system, clojure cheats in much the same way using
transients for intermediate calculations in an implementation
provided that the interface is pure.
I didn't elaborate too much during the talk as *NO-ONE* nodded to
say they new clojure so moved swiftly on :-)
