Recursion

    Can someone take the time to explain recursion to me; particularly what it involves and why we use it.

    Cheers.

    Not to discourage you or anything, but you might want to try investigating topics yourself before asking a question. Google them, or read a book, and then if there's something you don't understand, ask a question about that.

    Asking people to recite definitions is not well-received in many online communities. Channel9 is not so strict about this, but I know some places where you'd be flamed to death by now.

    well I hate to say this but the answer is recusive ....


    take a look at a fractal; some fractal drawing programs are iterative systems, they keep doing the same thing over and over but alter one or more parameters each time following a set of rules.

    others are recusive, why? read the first bit then imagine how you might remove the need for a loop but do the same work.

    look at some fractal zooms of a one area... look at the pattern, that repeates ...

    Also, if you're going to ask homework questions, it's worth a least putting in a bit of effort to hide the fact....

    To understand recursion you must first understand recursion... Smiley

    Yup; you do the same every time (pun intended)
