I'm writing a code that calculates a bunch of parameters. I say:
print "What would you like to know?\n\n";
and the response goes here:
Let's say that $INT=5.
When the user types in INT, I would like the program to say:
INT: 5, or $type: $$type (effectively).
And then to keep prompting for user information until they type "exit".
I'm not sure how to call out variable names from the user input to display values that have already been calculated previously in the program. I'm sure this is a simple question, or something I shouldn't have to be doing at all. Any help would be appreciated!
