I'm no expert in recursion. However, I ran your script both in Idle and
as an executable script. It worked fine each time, using the values of
1000, 100, and 1001. When I set n to 10000 I received the following error:
File "./recurse.py", line 7, in rlgncount
RuntimeError: Maximum recursion depth exceeded
The first two lines were repeated quite a number of times, so I'm not
sure of the limit to recursion depth. Whether or not that is something
that may be changed, I don't know, but it's the only error I found. I'm
running Debian 2.2r2 with Python 1.5.2.
