if you're making sure that they enter a number for input use something like this....


var tempinput : string
var someint : int

    put "enter the number"
    get tempinput
    exit when strintok (tempinput)
end loop
someint := strint (tempinput)

you could also add some more conditions to the exit statement on the loop... like say you wanted the number to be between 5 and 10 or something your exit statement would look something like

    exit when strintok (tempinput) and strint (tempinput) >= 5 and strint (tempinput) <= 10

hope this helps you in your endeavours [/code]
