I made it stop guessing zero. I just don't really understand how to set a new minimum or maximum and have it still guess a random number. Updated code below

use strict; my ($number, $new_guess, $my_hint, @guesses); my $range = 9; my $count = 1; my $number = 1 + int rand 10; #min of 1 and high of 10, range does 0-g +iven int so i made the range 9 (0-9) and added one to it -> (1-10) print "My guess is: $number \n"; print "High, low, or right?\n"; while($my_hint ne "right"){ chomp($my_hint = <STDIN>); @guesses[$count] = $my_hint; if ($my_hint eq "low"){ $new_guess = ((1 + int rand 10); print "I guess: " . $new_guess . "\n"; print "High, low, or right?\n"; } elsif ($my_hint eq "high"){ $new_guess = (1 + int rand 10); print "I guess: " . $new_guess . "\n"; print "High, low, or right?\n"; } elsif ($my_hint eq "right"){ print "It took me " . $count . " tries\n"; } else{ print "What? Am I high, low, or right?\n"; } $count++; }

[SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
[SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
