Call() Function Recurse

Recommended Posts

Renon

In the autoit limits sction they say: MAXCALLRECURSE 5100 Maximum number of times the Call() function can recurse to itself.

What is ment by it?

Is it that after that number of times calling that will it stop working.

Renon,

func a() 
call a() 
endfunc

It means that the above code will error after 5100 calls to func a() from within func a().

Edit: trying to straighten out the formatting

No. The only solution is: better coding.

Sure. Code in assembly language. Before calling the recursive function set up your own stack a few GB in size. ;(

Thanx M23 That is a good idea, on the wiki it shows how breaking the loop can help stop exceed the lmit of the call fuction.

I'm sure you can find some recursive examples using FindFirstFile() FindNextFile() in Windows. Where you put the recursive call controls breadth first vs depth first search. Same applies to many tree structures. Although as soon as you use containers someone is likely to shout "use the STL!!" even if there isn't one for AutoIt. :)
