Tail Call Optimization

Relate to

What is tail call optimization?

Roughly, whenever the last thing a function does is to call another function then the latter does not need to return to its caller. As a consequence, no information needs to be stored on the call stack and the function call is more of a goto (a jump). This kind of call is named tail call; not growing the stack is named tail call optimization (TCO).

Let’s look at an example to better understand TCO. I’ll first explain how it is executed without TCO and then with TCO.
