tail recursion optimisation
Jump to user comments
(TRO) When the last thing a function or procedure does is to
call itself, it is not necessary to retain the calling
environment. This is important when a procedure calls itself
recursively many times for, without tail recursion
optimisation, the environments of earlier invocations would
fill up the memory only to be discarded when (if) the last
call terminated.
