Don't forget the squirrel reference.

I don't have my copy in front of me, and I'm not sure which edition it's in.

I found nothing about this --- care to enlighten me?

Ben Levy writes in reply to Dave:
What about the squirrel?
In the first edition, page 227 says
squirrel 131
Page 131 has a discussion about binary trees and recursion, but no references to squirrels.

The first edition does not have a recursive entry in the index under recursion.

About halfway down the page, there is a sentence saying ''... and alloc, to provide space for squirreling the words away.''
