Clojure is but you have to work hard for that, the initial
language is effectively pure.
https://ideone.com/y8KWja clearly it isn't, its site only
claims that most code happens to be pure, but it looks like
it's not checked in any way and not sure if purity can be even
From the Clojure homepage: "Clojure is impure, yet stands behind
the philosophy that programs that are more functional are more
robust." The goal is to make it easy to program in a functional
style, not to provide a pure functional programming language. It
is like OCaml in that respect.
