Example from Riju:
(println "Hello, world!")
Example from hello-world:
(println "Hello World")
; Hello world in Clojure (defn hello [] (println "Hello world!")) (hello)
Example from Linguist:
(defn rand "Returns a random floating point number between 0 (inclusive) and n (default 1) (exclusive)." ([] (scm* [n] (random-real))) ([n] (* (rand) n)))
Example from Wikipedia:
;; A typical entry point of a Clojure program: ;; `-main` function (defn -main ; name [& args] ; (variable) parameters (println "Hello, World!")) ; body
