re: Advent of Code 2019 Solution Megathread - Day 5: Sunny with a Chance of Asteroids VIEW POST


I built my original solution to this on top of my Day 2 solution, but was really unhappy about how that solution had turned out. So, I spent time over the weekend and into this morning building out a more clean solution around the Intcode Computer (knowing that it's going to likely be used more later).

The implementation is below (and also accessible here), along with the new execution calls for Day 2:

;; incode_computer.clj
(ns aoc2019.intcode-computer)

(def operations
  {1 {:params 3, :action (fn [p1 p2 _] {:output (+ p1 p2)})}
   2 {:params 3, :action (fn [p1 p2 _] {:output (* p1 p2)})}
   3 {:params 1, :action (fn [_]
                           {:output (Integer/parseInt (read-line))})}
   4 {:params 1, :action (fn [p1] (println p1) {})}
   5 {:params 2, :action (fn [p1 p2] (if (not= 0 p1) {:jump p2} {}))}
   6 {:params 2, :action (fn [p1 p2] (if (= 0 p1) {:jump p2} {}))}
   7 {:params 3, :action (fn [p1 p2 _] (if (< p1 p2) {:output 1} {:output 0}))}
   8 {:params 3, :action (fn [p1 p2 _] (if (= p1 p2) {:output 1} {:output 0}))}
   99 {:params 0}})

(defn fetch
  "Retrieves the opcode, and the number of arguments for that opcode"
  (let [opcode (get (:instructions machine) (:program-counter machine))
        action (mod opcode 100)]
    {:opcode opcode
     :action action
     :params (:params (get operations action))}))

                   (take 3)
    (map #(condp = %
            \0 {:mode :direct}
            \1 {:mode :immediate}) modes)))

  (let [params (map #(condp = (:mode %)
                       :direct (:param-val %)
