Simple Dummy Clojure Parser in Rust

This is not a production-ready neither serious parser, it’s for pure fun! I was bored during one of the pandemics late nights watching Sam Rose’s 3h parser video. So I decided to do something similar, inspired by Sam’s video. Of course, I did not want to make a 3 hours video fighting Rust compiler — which is the ultimate reality but something shorter. The code is similar but I have few more operations like * and inc. I also using a queue for Args not Stack so we can preserve ordering. So this is a cool way to learn rust because in the code we will be using Stack and Queue Data Structures and basics of borrow and ownership in rust. Let’s get started!
