[REBOL] Re: Tail end recursion

From: bry:itnisk at: 9-Oct-2003 15:19

To put it simply tail-end recursion is where the recursion is the last action that occurs, i.e. no further processing occurs after recursion to (i+1), I think statistics show that most uses of recursion are in fact tail-end. Functional programming tends to rely on heavy use of recursion, and thus on heavy use of tail-end recursion.
