Recursion call with more than one function

svatstika asked:

Open original thread
Hello everybody!

I have a question about recursion.

I have 2 functions called f1 and f2. In f1's body we call f2 function, in f2's body we call f1 function, like this

return_type1 f1(parameter list 1)
   f2(parameter list 2);

return_type2 f2(parameter list 2)
   f1(parameter list 1);

But it didn't work. I think there must be some stuff (like keyword) so that the compiler would know a bout this type of recursion.

Any help would be appreciated!
