I wast just wondering guys how do you look at recursion , how do you apply it (i m not talking here about easy recursions like hannoi tower, factoriels, fibonnaci... wich are obvious). I m a beginner programmer and i understand the concept quite well but let s say a more complex problem appears than i would have to think hard and yet i would n t know how to apply recusion(in wich order to form the code so the recursion works on it). So my question is will i ever understand recursion, will it ever be the thing that i ll say that it s a piece of cake, and the other question is how did you guys get on with it, how did you understand it, how long did it take to fully understand(i know that some of you have abstract minds and you pick it up fast..)
PS. I know that tracing recursion is a bad idea.
