Is there any way to generate many divs nested each other?

I expect print some like this:

<div>
  <div>
    <div>
      <div>
        <div>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Simple loop is not helping

- (1..5).each do |i|
  %div

The result is:

<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>

You'll need recursion not iteration. 

Basically you write a method that calls itself n number of times and has an exit condition to avoid a race condition. This is a good exercise for a beginning programmer, also its surprising how many programmers don't know it. So I'll leave it to you as homework and also because I'm at work and don't have time. good luck
