There are many ways to achieve that. An easy way is to repeat the code that generates of the number in the success block. Here's a slightly different way to do it using a "special" value (undef) and using an if as a statement modifier:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use warnings; use strict; my $secret; while (1) { $secret = int(1 + rand 100) if ! defined $secret; print "please enter a guess from 1 to 100: "; chomp (my $guess = <STDIN>); if ($guess =~ /quit|exit|^s*$/i) { print "Sorry you gave up. The number was $secret.\n"; last; } if ($guess < $secret) { print "You failed, try higher.\n"; } elsif ($guess > $secret) { print "You failed, try lower.\n"; } elsif ($guess == $secret) { print "You got it!\n"; $secret = undef; } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
