You have not written any code on an 8 bit processor or a microcontroller for a while? By avoiding anything that resembles calling a subroutine you can save a lot of your precious little memory and also save some execution time because you don't have to run up and down the stack at every corner. Plus saving and restoring the contents of any processor registers you might change in your subroutine. If you religiously stick to other wise words, like keeping your functions short and calling them a lot, suddently half or more of your memory is excusively dedicated to working on the stack.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
