Sure. But why bother?
Anything that can be done with recursion can be done with iteration.
Turng proved that in 1936.
Recursion was just an attempt to "unify" design approach by abstracting
itteration and creating a new context. It allowed the programmer to
isolate himself from the reality that he was actually iterating. Talk
about mind fuck.
It seems things were just to simple the way they were.
Like all fashion, this too shall pass.
