    Why is recursion everywhere in my java code?

    Alaric, recursion and iteration, which is faster to execute?

    I'd expect even given a sensible language (eg not ML) then iteration will win. Recursion will require method/function calls which impose more of a cost in terms of program flow (eg looking up a function and then branching is more expensive than just branching I'd expect).

    Then you need to think about the increast number of stacks and so on and it all looks a bit bad for recursion...

    But! You have to decide what will cost you more in the long run, unclear unmaintainable code or /slightly/ slower code.

    one more question: How do I ssh into my pwf space and upload files? I know it's ssh something something. I still need the address. Once I'm in, what do I do to upload or download files?

    Do I have a ftp client on SuSE? I'm not sure. Even if I did, it'll still be command line, and I still need to know how to work "cp" or "scp".

    Yes. If they hadn't removed the jokes to put in a love story, it would've been excellent.

    To upload:
    Code:
    scp local/filename [email protected]:~/remote/filename/if/there/should/be/one
    To download:
    Code:
    scp [email protected]:~/remote/filename local/filename/destination
    There is also linux2 if linux3 is having problems. You can also of course use a directory as the filename and the current filename will be added to the destination directory.

    For more information:
    Code:
    man scp

    did you talk to him at all though? I was chatting with someone who sees him quite often, and was saying how it gets very confusing when you ask him a question and he doesnt seem to reply, then you ask him another question, again no response, then you ask him a third question. Finally you get a response: it's the answer to the first question!
