Pipe dreams aren’t necessarily made of promises

Because of the spinning nature of atoms, it’s kind of a hack (a fun hack but still a hack) to build queues on it. Here is the same pipe function built on Java queues:

(defn pipe []
  (let [q (java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingQueue.)
        EOQ (Object.)
        NIL (Object.)
        s (fn s [] (lazy-seq (let [x (.take q)] 
                               (when-not (= EOQ x) 
                                 (cons (when-not (= NIL x) x) (s))))))]
    [(s) (fn ([] (.put q EOQ)) ([x] (.put q (or x NIL))))]))
