I'm going through the Linux/Linuxgym and found myself wondering what recursive is as it keeps on popping up when I'm coding. What do you mean by 'recursive option'? What is recursive basically in Linux? What does it do? I always see seperate code for recursive and non-recursive one. Thanks in advance and hope for quick reply. Cheers! Thank you for the link mick f. But can you give me more direct link. I've searched that link and all I saw was people USING recursive code to do their program. But I just want to know what recursive is or does when put in and when not put in. Thanks in advance!
