Hi,


There is a minute difference between these two.


Recursive function means - a function that calls itself continuously until that(one)  condition fails.


There must be one exit condition for recursive function.


For Eg.: Factorial program.


Call Back function - Its same sa that of recursive funcion.


But it can call back according to the user's data, by providing appropriate information for the next execution. I


t may be an infinte loop function also.


In general both are same..


Recursion means calling itself again and again.

I too confused between both. According to me, Recursive is used to describe Itself and call back function is used for backward function.

Call back function is a goto function which is used backward.
recursion means the function called by itself.
