repeatedly performs replacements until expr no longer changes.
- effectively applies repeatedly, until the results it gets no longer change.
- It performs one complete pass over the expression using , then carries out the next pass.
- You should be very careful to avoid infinite loops when you use the operator. The command will, for example, lead to an infinite loop.
- ReplaceRepeated takes the option MaxIterations, which specifies the maximum number of times it will try to apply the rules you give. The default setting is MaxIterations->65536. With MaxIterations->Infinity there is no limit.
