Wise Monks-

Am trying to write a currency conversion script that prompts successively until it obtains both "from" and "to" currencies that are within a hash. Not working, lol. Your advice is sought. Thanks much in advance.

#!/usr/bin/perl # use warnings; use strict; my ($value, $from, $to, $rate, $rates, %rates); %rates = ( pounds => 1, USD => 1.6, marks => 3.0, "french francs" => 10.0, yen => 174.8, "swiss francs" => 2.43, drachma => 492.3, euro => 1.5 ); print "Enter your starting currency: "; OUTER0: while (<STDIN>) { chomp; INNER0: for $from (%rates) { last OUTER0 if $from eq $_; } } print "Enter your target currency: "; OUTER1: while (<STDIN>) { chomp; INNER1: for $to (%rates) { last OUTER1 if $to eq $_; } } print "Enter your amount to convert: "; $value = <STDIN>; $rate = $rates{$to} / $rates{$from}; print "$value $from is ",$value*$rate," $to. \n";

In reply to a hash and 2 loops--not working by jhumphreys

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
