Quick exam comment

In spite of a curriculum that emphasizes recursion, you folks are much too reluctant to use recursion. How recursion helps with remove

 Node remove(key, Node here)
      // Case: Nothing left
      return null;

      // Case: Keys match
      return recomputedTree;

      // Case: Key is less than here.key
      here.smaller = remove(key, here.smaller);
      return here;

      // Case: Key is bigger than here.key
      here.larger = remove(key, here.larger);
      return here;

One of the many things you didn't learn in 161

  x = foo ? bar : baz;

This is the legendary C "conditional expression".
