Of course. I think Cesar picked up "divide and conquer" from his experience with COBOL.



I wonder what would have happened if Caesar had had access to modern problem solving tools.

After all, if he could come up with something that directly leads to recursion what would he have done on the algorithm front given a mechanism more suited to the development of more complex algorithms? Regular language only gets you so far in that respect.
