       clojure - a JVM-based dynamic programming language


       clojure  [-cp/-classpath  classpath]  [-i/--init path] [-e/--eval expr]
       {-h | -r | path | -} [args ...]


       This manual page documents briefly the clojure command.

       clojure is the main entry point  for  Clojure,  a  dynamic  programming
       language  that  targets  the Java Virtual Machine.   With no options or
       arguments, it runs an interactive Read-Eval-Print loop (REPL).


       A summary of options is included below.

       -cp, -classpath classpath
              Specifies  additional   classpath   elements.    Overrides   the
              $CLASSPATH environment variable.  Must appear first if given.

       -i, --init path
              Load  a  file  or  resource  at  initialisation  time.   May  be
              specified multiple times.

       -e, --eval string
              Evaluate expressions in string; print non-nil  values.   May  be
              specified multiple times.

       -r, --repl
              Run a repl

       path   Run a script from a file or resource

       -      Run a script from standard input

       -h, -?, --help
              Print a help message and exit


       A  Clojure file can be provided as a path argument.  Files to be loaded
       from the classpath must be prefixed with a ‘@’ character, and  must  be
       an absolute path to the classpath resource.  Note that the path will be
       treated as absolute within the classpath, whether it is prefixed with a
       slash or not.

       clojure  binds  *command-line-args*  to a seq containing the (optional)
       arguments provided after the path argument;  this  provides  a  way  to
       provide command-line arguments to your scripts.


       A listing of recognised environment variables is included below.

              Specifies additional classpath elements.
