in thread problem prototyping a self-recursing function

I might have appeared zealous but I was not decrying recursion as being all bad; just advocating discretion in it's use.

We had a LISP lecturer who made grown men blubber if their reursive functions were over 3 lines<br and used sarcasm if iterative solutions were suggested....
/me shudders at the memory of his sarcasm
