Gets me wondering how many IFs are embedded in Google's search engine code... Somebody really shows a sense of humor there... ;-)

To know recursion, you have to know recursion!

Isn't recursion the noun for re-curse (curse again). For Ruby users it would be re-rail?

@Jan-Piet:

You don't IF such things but CASE ;-)

@Mathias: If Google is written in C(++) (which i don't know) then it is IF, cause C++ does not do CASE (or switch) on strings.

If I might be a nerd, most of Google’s stuff like this is written in Python :-)
