Generators for Deep Recursion

Recursion is often a short and elegant expression of an algorithm.Unfortunately it can also be unworkably slow, or even crash on largeinputs, especially in javascript with its lack of tail calls and its limitedcall stack size. Generators provide a way to retain the clarity of a recursive solution while managing the stack explicitly to avoid overflow.Our example recursive task is to calculate the minimum edit distancebetween two arrays. That is, the smallest number of additions orremovals that will transform an array xs into an array ys . The recursive solution is short and sweet:.
