Infinite Loops. Add compilation warnings

Service Studio
On our radar
Hello,

You really should implement a process during compilation that detects and warns about infinit loops(ex: a function calling itself, a "bad" IF flow).  A simple distraction can easily create an Infinite loop that will shut down an entire environment.

hahahaa good J. 

Just fowarding the Leo recent comment about this: 

"Well... detection of infinite loops is not attempted by any programming language. And for a good reason - it's an undecidable problem in computation theory. This means that it's an impossible task for any given computer."

So I think to detect a function calling itself or a "bad" IF flow is not so simple as it seems...
