Hi I'm back. While I haven't tried your post out yet, I did get a book on cgi so that should help me out as well. Will post again when I get some thing reasonable to work.

Hey is your computer science companion. It's not waiting for imput and when you try to print \$guess before the exit it does nothing, so guess doesn't ever get a value... I'll clean it up a bit and send it back...
```      print "Content-type: text/html";
use CGI;
\$query = new CGI;
print "<H1>DIRECTIONS:<br>Guess a number between 1 and 100 inclusiv
+e.\n\n</H1>";

\$random = int(rand(100)+1);

for (\$try=6;\$try>0;\$try--) {
print "You have 1 try left. Use it wisely!<br>" if(\$try ==1);
print "You have \$try tries left.<br>" if(\$try !=1);
print "What is your guess? --><br>";
print '<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="guess">';

print '<INPUT TYPE = "submit"><br>';
print "HA! HA! too HIGH." if (\$guess>\$random);
print "OH! NO! too LOW." if (\$guess<\$random);
if (\$guess==\$random){
print "'Bout time you guessed it.   Stupid head.<br><br>" ;
print"</BODY>";
exit;
+!!\n\n";exit;
}
}
+D!!";

print"</BODY>";

exit;
There we go patty k... much cleaner.. htmled up even, the \n was doing NOTHING so I changed it to: <br>
Dude! i tried a variation of this and it did the same thing...
It prints it out \$tries times then spits out the answer...

What do a plum and an elephant heve in common??

Look Ma, no hands!
