There is no question except your question for us to write your research paper for you.

Better luck next time kiddo, you've been found out.

How I know you're a kiddo: your use of extremely childish language constructs and text messaging shorthand gives you away instantly.

Yes. Question answered.

actually I don't believe they are... a loop starts at the beginning goes straight to the end, and then repeats.

a recusrive method/function will start at the beginning and go until it is called again (resursive) and then call a whole new instance of that method with different pararmeters/arguments. It will keep doing this until done, and then it will start to unwind and each function/method will then go to the end, and then rewind to the previous and again go to the end.

Since it's clearly a homework assignment, nobody with half a brain would just give away the answer. ;) Unless of course the answer is given in such a way as to be too cryptic to be useful, such as my answer.

i would not have responded to this question, but at the same time i did not want the wrong answer being given out... which i think is 10x worse than just been given the answer

But how can one answer a statement? The OP's question was whether someone can answer something which turns out to not be a question :mrgreen:

Everyone misunderstood his question. He asked if anyone knew. That requires a yes or no answer. So actually it wasn't that bad of a post.

No, apparently only paradox misunderstood. Everyone else seemed to get the joke.
