NAME

Sub::Call::Recur - Self recursive tail call invocation.

SYNOPSIS

    sub fact {
        my ( $n, $accum ) = @_;

        $accum ||= 1;

        if ( $n == 0 ) {
            return $accum;
        } else {
            recur( $n - 1, $n * $accum );
        }
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module implements Clojure's recur special form.

recur is a tail call to the current function. It is a bit like assigning the arguments to @_ and invoking a goto to the first expression of the subroutine.

It can be thought of as the redo operator, but for subroutines instead of loops.

This form allows functional style looping with constant stack space.
