    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!

    It means to travel down the directory hierarchy

    It ie explore all the sub-directories from the directory you are currently in , or the one specified on the command line

    Endearing terms

    Bernie was invited to his friend's home for dinner. Morris, the host, preceded every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, etc. Bernie looked at Morris and remarked, "That is really nice, that after all these years that you have been married, and you keep calling your wife those pet names." Morris hung his head and whispered," To tell the truth, I forgot her name three years ago."----------------------------------Do you look for free wow gold?
