You make a very good point! My bad on that bit.
I did say <cite>I think...</cite>
What do you expect at a Perl site? Java expertise :8^)...
Being serious for a moment, if Javac is 'doing the right thing' on that line, that just means that it's memory overhead on recursive subroutines must be even worse than I thought. 4,000 -v- 2,000,000 recursions before blowing the stack is a mind-boggling 500 times less efficient in terms of memory/stack management. I guess I was looking for a rational explanation.
Note: I have made no attempt to verify the numbers
Update:I have confirmed that your assertion is true when using javac from jdk1.3.1 as follows
Well It's better than the Abottoire, but Yorkshire!
