### Fibbomacci series using recursion shell programming?

Here is a good answer for recursion Fibonacci series.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
long Fibonacci(long n);
int main()
{
long r, n,i;
printf("Enter the value of n: ");
scanf("%ld",&n);
for(i=0;i<=n;i++)
{
printf(" Fibonacci(%ld)= %ld\n", i,Fibonacci(i));
}
getch();
return 0;
}
long Fibonacci(long n)
{
if(n==0 n==1)
return n;
else
{
return (Fibonacci(n-1)+Fibonacci(n-2));
}
}
for n=5;
Output: Fibonacci(0)=0
Fibonacci(1)=1
Fibonacci(2)=1
Fibonacci(3)=2
Fibonacci(4)=3
Fibonacci(5)=5
