I think you may be missing the point: 'i' will *never* be equal to 0.
You have to define appropriate epsilon (1.e-10 was just an example).

If you increment or decrement by 0.1, and if 1.e-10 is not "close
enough" for you, you need to think some more about what you are
actually trying to achieve and whether your algorithm ever halts.

In order to understand recursion you must first understand recursion.
