Another notation idea

This one's recursive! Excitement.

We start unconventionally, bordering everything with the % sign.

%a% = a

%a, b% = a^b

%a, b, 0% = %a, b%

%a, b, c% = %%a, b+1, c-1%, %a, b+1, c-1%, c-1%

An example:

%3, 3, 3% = %%3, 4, 2%, %3, 4, 2%, 2% =

%%%3, 5, 1%, %3, 5, 1%, 1%, %%3, 5, 1%, %3, 5, 1%, 1%, 2%

=

%%%%3, 6%, %3, 6%%, %%3, 6%, %3, 6%%, 1%, %%%3, 6%, %3, 6%%, %%3, 6%, %3, 6%%, 1%, 2%

=

(...)

= something rather large

As you can see, it builds up pretty quickly.
