# dynamic allocation in recursion

Posts: 607Member
I'm back, after so long...

but nvmd about that, this is my question

I've making a recursive algorithm, but have failed to find an alternative to using dynamic arrays in it, for each call requires a variable length array. Can this slip through, just this once?

Secondly, another horror is that each array needs to be initialized, one sneaky trick I thought of is to rather use a large single array instead of three (which each call has), and probably to use two other pointers to simulate the other arrays as seperate, or just use a special indexing scheme, so it can all be initialized once, instead of thrice. The algorithm is save from overflow, im sure, but is it okay?

thats all, thnx

Post that portion of your code and lets see.
