On the old 8 bit machines I used love to watch recursive calls eat up the stack and crash the machine.

Hi Agnishom;

A joke? I knew that. I always think people are joking and am amazed when I find out they are not.

They say that recursion is overused. That any time recursion is used it can be replaced by other more common techniques.
