[19:10:36] <Lucifer_arma> damn.  I need a recursive function now, and I hate writing those :/
[20:10:25] <Lucifer_arma> haha, avoid writing recursive function by simply writing piecemeal until it works :)
[20:10:35] <Lucifer_arma> (still not there, but now I can do it all in a while loop)

[22:14:42] <ct|kyle> Lucifer_arma: need help with recurssion?
[22:19:00] <Lucifer_arma> ct|kyle: nah, I found a way to write it without recursion.  Not that I need help with recursion....
[22:19:20] <Lucifer_arma> I just don't like using it.  Either you risk a situation where you get stuck in infinite recursion, or you have to write a bunch of checks to be careful
[22:19:49] <ct|kyle> Lucifer_arma: or stack overflows :)
[22:19:55] <Lucifer_arma> truthfully, most recursive algorithms I've encountered can be written with a while loop
[22:20:18] <Lucifer_arma> in this situation, I need to recursively scan templates to load each one, with the risk that several templates will result in an infinite recursion situation
[22:20:19] <ct|kyle> that's what happend when i had too many number in my quicksort in assembly :P
[22:20:37] <Lucifer_arma> ah, yes, I wrote a bubble sort back in high school
[22:20:48] <Lucifer_arma> teacher gave me a B because I used a while loop, when he wanted us to use recursion
[22:21:21] <Lucifer_arma> he didn't say "use recursion", mind you.  After he gave me the B, THEN he told me the whole point was to learn recursion
[22:21:33] <Lucifer_arma> so I used recursion (unnecessarily) on the next three assignments, and he finally quit grading me
[22:21:49] <ct|kyle> lol
[22:21:57] <Lucifer_arma> anyway, in this situation, I solved the problem by just keeping track of a list
[22:22:16] <Lucifer_arma> by using while len(thelist) > 0: I was able to simply add to the list whenever I found new templates
[22:22:37] <Lucifer_arma> using thelist.pop(0) inside the loop to process each one in turn, and just checking to see if I'd processed it already before processing it
[22:22:37] <ct|kyle> before I really knew what recurssion was, I used it to kill subprocesses before killing tha parent
[22:22:53] <Lucifer_arma> ah shit, that's like fighting drug cartels
[22:23:06] <Lucifer_arma> sure, you can eliminate one, but there's two more waiting to take its place
[22:24:25] <Lucifer_arma> I tried to write a recursive parser back in high school
[22:24:29] <Lucifer_arma> worst...idea...ever
[22:24:42] <Lucifer_arma> but I couldn't get it to properly detect spaces in a line of typing
[22:24:55] <ct|kyle> ah
[22:24:56] <Lucifer_arma> still don't know why I couldn't do it, because I did it just fine when I was like 26
[22:25:26] <Lucifer_arma> (I took a long break from computers after high school)
[22:26:46] <Lucifer_arma> also, that was not writing a recursive parser, I just tried recursion because I was trying to write the parser while we were studying recursion
