in reply to sub and anonymous sub

A minor nitpick from the staid and plaid realm of the anal retentive: It's recur, NOT recurse. Thank you for your time.

    I bow in deference to your superior knowledge........

    although this is possibly at odds with your statement, and this doesn't directly support it.

      Don't bother bowing. The previous AM is either a troll, or knows nothing about programming. (Odds are that you already noticed this.)

      To recur means for a situation to happen again. When you recurse a function, you cause yourself to recur immediately.

        /me provides an additional level of recursion..

        and "anal retentive" means "full of shit" does it not? :)

        Obviously the same (well-known, hi!) person re-cursing in lexically-scoped Anonymous land. Quite appropriate. Now to get out of these darned curly brac.. oh no!

        Ain't irony great! :)
