This is not for a class assingment or anything. I am just curious as to what recursion iss and how it is utiliesed. Keep in mind that I am not far in the more advanced techniques like arrays and I still am having a tough time with pointers. I know classes, functions, loops, and things like that. Can you give me an explination and maybe an example on what basic recursion is and I can go from there. Thankx, and did I mentino this is not a homework question.
