How would i write a hangman program that asks you what word will the other user be guessing. Each time the user guesses a correct letter it will say "Yes there are 4 E's!" or "Yes there are 2 W's!" and then shows the letters and in thr right position. i really need help with this! i havn'ty even got a clue where to start! all help is appreciated. THANKS!!!!

well you use standart input/output for the word the user will be guessing.
code:

put "what word to guess?"
get secretword


then you make an array of boolean to keep track of letters that were guessed.

code:

var letter:array 1..length(secretword) of boolean


and initialize them all to false since none of the letters were guessed yet

then start a loop where user guesses letters

compare guessed letter with all the letters in the word
code:

if userguess = secretword(1)  %well ( i) since it will be in the loop


if the guess is right, mark your boolean array as true and let user know he guessed right

you can draw the letter in the correct spot using Font.Draw

there're tutorials covering everything mentioned above in the tutorials section

letter(1) := false

that will make the 1st one equal to false...

code:
var secretword, guess, wordguess, ans : string

put "Enter the word to Guess!"
get secretword
cls

var letter : array 1 .. length (secretword) of boolean


put "Enter a letter!"
get guess
loop

if (guess (1) := false) then
put "Sorry there are no ", guess (1), " 's"
else
put "Yes there is at least 1 ", guess (1)
end if

put "would you like to guess the word now?"
get ans
if (ans = "yes") then
put "Type in what you think the word is in Lower Case letters"
get wordguess
else
put "Ok then guess your next word!"
end if
exit when wordguess = secretword
end loop

Whats wrong with this?

variable guess is a string, not array. You dont need (1) after it.

Here's how I would do it.
code:

%The message to be guessed by the user
var strMessage : string
%The user's guess, they can only guess one letter at a time, so the variable is a string (1)
% ...that is, it is a string that can only hold 1 character rather than 255.
var strGuess : string (1)

loop
    %Clear the screen
    cls
    %Put the cursor in the top left corner of the screen
    locate (1, 1)
    %Prompt the user for their guess
    put "Please enter your guess"
    %Getch sets the value of strGuess to the first key that the user presses
    getch (strGuess)
    %Now, find out if strGuess is part of strMessage
    %Go through the entire message
    for i : 1 .. length (strMessage)
        %Read this as: If the i'th character of strMessage is the same as strGuess then...
        %How this works is as follows:
        %Pretend that strMessage = 'hangman' and the player guessed 'a'
        %First, i = 1 so it checks the first character of strMessage [strMessage(1)]
        %it then does the comparison: does 'h' = 'a'
        if strMessage (i) = strGuess then
            %I'll leave this part up to you
        else %The i'th character is not equal to the user's guess
            %Don't do anything, just check the next character until all comparisons are done
        end if
    end for
end loop


Keep in mind, this is just a shell for finding matches, it's up to you to decide what to do next.

If you don't understand, don't be afraid to ask (PM or otherwise)

heh miko, you seem to have the problem of not sharing your code, we cannot help you if you're not completely specific, if there is an error in your code then we need to SEE your code.

All thanks to Darkness, heres what i got:

Code:


var strMessage, ans, wordguess : string
var strGuess : string (1)
put "Enter the word!"
get strMessage
loop


cls

locate (1, 1)

put "Please enter your guess"

getch (strGuess)
delay (500)


for i : 1 .. length (strMessage)




if strMessage (i) = strGuess then
put "Yes! letter number ", i, " is a ", strGuess
delay (800)


else
put "No, letter number ", i, " is not a ", strGuess
delay (800)
end if

end for
put "would you like to guess the word yet?"
get ans
exit when ans = "yes"
end loop
put "Enter your guess for the word!!!!"
get wordguess
cls
if (wordguess = strMessage) then
put "Correct!!! the word was ", strMessage
else
put "HAHAHAAHAHAHA!!! YOU SUCK!!!!! THE WORD WAS ", strMessage,
" HAHAAHAHA!!!!"
end if

Now how would i modify that so that each time a letter is guessed correctly, it is displayed to the screen?

you could make an array of which ones you've guessed... like what was said ealier... and if that letter is guessed, display it at the top of the screen...
ex:
code:
var guessed:array 1..length(word) of boolean
for i:1..length(word)
if(guessed(i) = true)then
put word(i) ..
end if

this isnt supossed to work, its an example of what you could do
so basicly what you would do, is set each letter guessed to false and when hte player guesses a right one, its set to true and displayed at the top, but of course you'll have to organize it so its displayed correctly...

organize it by checking each letter, and if it the letter matches up.. then display it at a certian point using locate(x,y)
code:
var guessed:array 1..length(word) of boolean
for i:1..length(word)
locate(i,1)
if(guessed(i) = true)then
put word(i) ..
end if


i think i explained it right... Rolling Eyes
