    You can write it any way you want. As long as the function calls itself, it's recursive.
    Code:
    int main()
    {
      int z = 0;
      foo(z);
      return 0;
    }
    
    void foo(x)
    {
      x++;
      while (x < 5)
       foo(x);
    }

    ~Thank you~

    Is there a good mathematics site anywhere?
    also, an easy to learn from one?
    ~Thank you~

    im not sure about sites but if your looking to learn Algebra i would go for the Saxon's Algebra 1 'An Incremental Development ' Se. and then follow up with Algebra 2 of the same type... there pretty good books. they teach Trigonometry, Geometry, and a little Pre-Calculus, and there not fast paced and full of examples, easy to learn from.

    it is basically a java like, supposedly fully object oriented language, based off of C++.

    It does. I didn't give the function prototype, was just posting an example. Recursive functions are often demonstrated with factorials or fibonacci numbers in textbooks.

    So C# is easier/harder to learn?
    Also, is java a computer programming language? or web authoring?

    I see, is java much the same as C++?

    or is it a whole new ball game?

    can C# be used in pretty much the same manner as C++?

    Or is it mainly java style?

    its based off of C++ and is fairly similar except it uses only classes for everything.

    from what i've seen mainly java style, though honestly i havn't seen much of it.

    Thank you no-one, your a wealth of information.
    heres another one for you, do programmers generally know a lot more than just C++?
    I mean, does a "seasoned" programmer know java, pascal, basic, even web programming languages?
    ~Thank you~

    I'm hardly a seasoned programmer, but my take is that many programmers know several languages, although they may concentrate in one or two. C/C++ is a good one, because many other languages are based on or similar to them. I've done some Perl, VB, unix shell scripting, dos batch files, and there are a lot of common elements among them. Sometimes the differences are confusing because of that. I can be writing in one language and put in elements of another.

    Brown Drake, it right, usually they concentrate on a single language till they have become expert in it, and move to a wide range of others sometimes even before becoming expert, a lot of the time it depends on the job their doing, but a sound base in one will help in other languages for sure.
