 Description   

(defn resolve
"same as (ns-resolve ns symbol) or (ns-resolve ns &env symbol)"

The ampersand on "&env" in the doc string is distracting. There's no macro magic involved so it should just say "env".

There are earlier uses of &form and &env in core.clj, but they are all in bootstrap code and none of them become visible in doc strings. There are no other occurrences of & in resolve or ns-resolve, so it seems reasonable to remove it from resolve's doc string.

Patch applies cleanly to latest master as of Feb 24, 2012.

The only way to access local environments in Clojure is with the special &env argument in a macro, so the use of &env in the ns-resolve docstring makes sense.

Declined.
