Isn't this just a reoccurring function called from within itself until a particular set of conditions are met? I don't know it just seems like shorthand to me. Like a do-while loop. I am sure it could be used for more than just factorials.

What is recursive?

recursive functions are functions that call them selves until a surtain condition is met. You are right.
