Lol. Definitely not. One thing I've learned from many years as a software developer is that obfuscation is a waste of time except to deter casual investigation. Anyone with enough time and resources can unobfuscate anything. Anyway, I've since discovered I don't need the recursive anonymous call, but my intent was to recursively call an anonymous, "local" function (don't know what these are actually called") e.g.,

foo : function(i) {
  (function(j) { 
      // do stuff with j and recursively call this fcn
   // other stuff

Yes, there are many other ways in JS to do this. I'm partly getting bored, though, and so am exploring more esoteric JS syntax. My boredom was also one reason I recently asked you & Phil in what other forums/mailing lists you hang out.

Thanks for the help (to you, too, Konstantin),
