the only one who likes to avoid using recursion


There are certainly cases where it makes sense since there is no expectation that the business would need more. And example is recursing on an asset tree which users work. There is of course no reason for a user to use a tree that is, for example, 1,000 deep.

But I still enforce it by passing a depth variable. I don't do that really due to users doing something silly but rather because developers (including me) doing something silly and producing an endless loop.

I use parentheses
just to make sure it operates in the proper order.


I do too. Makes it obvious to a maintainer what order I expected rather than leaving it up to them to verify every time it is looked at that the order represents what is actually needed.

Not to mention of course that doing it all the time means one does not get surprised by things like the precedence order for inline conditionals (question mark and colon). Which I have seen people get wrong.
