  2. I’ve used a similar pattern of recursion for some plugins I’ve built. I honestly felt a little bit…dirty using it for some reason. I’m glad to see someone else using it; now I can feel OK with it in my own code (provided it’s justified). 🙂

    • Hi @Josh,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Not dirty at all. I was taught recursion back in my computer science courses in the 80’s. It was mind bending for me back then when I was new to recursion so I can see how some people might struggle with it.

      But for many problem there is not better algorithm than recursion; use it and be proud!
