When you try to make recursive function and send the counter directly. you have 
an  error, to fix this, you need increment before the counter, and after send 
this counter.

Test script:
function foo($i){
if( $i < 100){
   echo " ".$i;
   return foo($i++); // bug
  return $m="\r\nEnd Process";
echo foo($i);

Expected result:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ...  97 98 99 100
End Process

Actual result:
00000...0000000 Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted 
(tried to allocate 523800 bytes) in /home/paridin/public_html/bug.php on line 5

return foo(++$i); instead of return foo($i++);

foo($i++); will always call foo(0);

Yes, dtajchreber, this behavior is very rarely 'cause into python work well, but 
into C or PHP not run, i tested this same example into this three languages but, 
maybe Python support the bad logic, and i thinking i have a bad logic when i try 
send a counter while increment this.

thanks for the fast answer.
