Code Block
$ ant jar
# If no compilation errors, 'ant jar' creates clojure.jar in Clojure tree root dir

# Or, if you prefer Maven
$ mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true package
# If no compilation errors, mvn command above creates target/clojure-1.67.0-master-SNAPSHOT.jar

The commands above build a Clojure jar file, but neither compile nor run the tests.


Code Block
# Replace clojure.jar with target/clojure-1.67.0-master-SNAPSHOT.jar if you ran mvn command
$ java -cp test:clojure.jar clojure.main
Clojure 1.67.0-master-SNAPSHOT

Start a repl and run a generative test from it:

Generative tests use additional testing jars (installed when you run ./ Thus, you'll need to have some additional classpath which will leave in the maven-classpath file. If you are on *nix, the easiest way to leverage this file is:
