( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A couple of things in addition to the advice shmem has already given. Firstly you are not checking if the number the user has guessed is the secret number, just that it is a lower number, and you never tell the user that they have guessed correctly. Try the code below:
use strict; use warnings; my $secret=42; my $guess; while(1) { print "please enter a guess from 1 to 100: "; chomp($guess = <STDIN>); if ($guess =~ /quit|exit|^s*$/i){ print " sorry you gave up.the number was $secret.\n"; last; } if ($guess != $secret) { print "Wrong! Guess again.\n"; }else{ print "Correct!\n"; last; } }
In your example if the secret number was 42 and the user enters 43 they are not told that they have failed to guess correctly.
Please read the PerlMonks FAQ and How do I post a question effectively? if you have not alreay done so.

Hope this helps

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.
