reitercurse: iterative behavior from a recursive function - no warranty, no guarantee, and the author is absentee.
, I agree entirely - however, there is an entire (younger) culture out there that considers recursion be poor form. I've encountered so much of this mindset in the past five years. I can only get a recursive function through code review if I pull rank. I see a lot of the same distaste of OOP systems, too: inheritance is like recursion and only obfuscates code. It drives me nuts.
