There are genuinely serious problems unless you are careful coding recursion...

But think of scenarios where you can use recursion and you will find
that recursion is not a very easily implementable for most purposes...
and even when you can use it, removing bugs in it is complicated...
(you have hit upon a correct problem.. :-)  but of different kind
(more about it later..

Coming to the topic... using recursion successfully should qualify you
for spot close to the top if you could get it right because of
complexities involved in thinking and coding it.

{now coming to a *highly inflamable* topic... what about
(philosophical) problems in Recursive acronyms and debugging them?
How can one be sure that there are no serious problems in anything
that uses recursion?  Any good technique for analysis?}

Coming back to normal (nonflamable) topic... can anybody suggest a
better option  than single stepping for debugging a program that uses
recursion???

thinking about "Journey of a single सोपान" ....
