    Default Need help with my findMin method. Code included

    Im suppose to perform this method recursively however when I lauch the program i get an error stating out of bounds. Any suggestions?
    // assumes that a != null && a.length > 0
    public static int findMin(int[] a) {
        return findMinRecursive(a, a[0], 1);
    }
     
    private static int findMinRecursive(int[] array, int lo, int pos) {
        if(pos >= array.length)
            return lo;
     
        if(array[pos] < lo)
            lo = array[pos];
     
        return findMinRecursive(array, lo, pos + 1);
    }

    What's out of bounds? Post the exact error message and stack trace, copied and pasted into a post.

    It was along the lines of an Exception such as an IllegalArgumentException at line 3 saying out of bounds

    When you can post an exact copy of the error message rather than your best guess/recollection, do that.
