i stink at binary trees

my son has a programming project in his college course covering recursion. he asked me for some help with (what we both perceived as) a difficult problem. i was no help [sigh]. the next day, his instructor showed him the tiny little bit of code that was needed to solve the problem - *pwned!*

whenever i have to put together regexes to solve problems in my exyus framework, i struggle and strain. i always end up using some visual test tool that walks me through lots of test scenarios so i can get it right. and sometimes i still think i've missed something that will come back to bite me down the road.
