fun f x = if x=0 then < expression > else < expression_with_recursive_call_of f >if the if-then-else were strict, then the evaluation of the recursive call would always be required, even when x=0, and therefore we would always loop. Note that if definition by pattern-matching were available, we could give the alternative definition (which does not require if-then-else):
