in reply to Recursion: The Towers of Hanoi problem

This is a real beauty. In this case, without recursion, you have to use something like stack to rememeber all the steps you went through, and for an average person, it wold take you quite some time to make the stack right, when to push, when to pop...

With recursion, the REAL code is only about 4 or 5 lines long.

This could even be viewed as sort of AI program, but the solution is definite.

[Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
