Does Robo-FTP's script language support recursion?
Robo-FTP 3.8 and later
Yes, currently the script language does support recursive routines. See the Help file for details: Using Functions.
Robo-FTP 3.7.x and earlier
Robo-FTP 3.7.x and earlier do not support functions calling themselves recursively.
In theory, the EXEC command could be used to open a new instance of Robo-FTP and pass that instance a script file and up to nine parameters. That instance could then close and return a single numeric result, or save a more verbose answer to a text file.
While this could be used to mimic a recursive routing, it is not very memory efficient, and is generally impractical.
