It also targets CLR, the Clojure Language Runtime, a native implementation of Clojure on Microsoft's .Net Framework,
programmed in C# and using the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR).
Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
It is a predominantly a functional programming language, and features a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures.
The language offers a software transactional memory system and reactive Agent system that ensure clean, correct, multithreaded designs.
Clojure is a compiled language, directly to JVM bytecode, but manages remains completely dynamic.
Every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime.
Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection.
