Subject:[MarkLogic Dev General] Ensuring That Tail Recursion Optimization Will Be Applied
From:Eliot Kimber (

ML 9

I’m using recursive functions to process an arbitrarily large set of items where
in a procedural language I would use a while true() loop. The number of items
can be large so tail recursion optimization has to be in place or I’ll
eventually blow the call stack.

My question: How do I ensure that my functions are constructed so that tail
recursion optimization will be applied?

A search on “recursion” or “tail recursion” didn’t reveal anything on the ML
docs site.
