The computer keeps telling me I’m overloading my ‘stack’..?????

So I looked it up on Wikipedia:

Main article: infinite recursion
The most common cause of stack overflows is excessively deep or infinite recursion. Languages, like Scheme, which implement tail-call optimization allow infinite recursion of a specific sort — tail recursion — to occur without stack overflow. This works because tail-recursion calls do not take up additional stack space.[3]

I have put out a feeler for you, in the hope some of my tekkie friends can help. It sounds like double dutch to me.

Haha! Thanks GM.
(Took me years and years to learn dutch - need a whole new lifetime for this techie stuff)!

Kate said...

Oh Geri - that sounds nasty! Have you sorted it out yet????

Hi Kate ~ no not yet. It's all a bit above my head I'm afraid! Just hoping it will get tired and go away by itself...(usual M.O.D.).
