But this is a completely different issue!
I did not say an endless loop, per se, was a stupid thing. I said that a
recursion which ends up being an endless loop is probably a bad designed one.
(For a well designed recursive function, I was told that it had to finish
"some day", otherwise you don't get the desired output result!).
[ If you still want to talk about endless loops, recursion, and such I
would suggest to continue by private email ].
