in reply to Guess the number

do the following steps
1.put this file in a web server directory which executes cgi scripts and change permission to 755 (assuming a *nix server)
2.add print " Content-type: text/html \n\n" at top of the program
3.create a html form with a input box and a submit button
4. u can pass the num of tries either from a hidden variable from the HTML form or set a cookie
5. use and get the variables instead of reading from STDIN
hope this helps

    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.

    Original post updated!!!!

    Hello. This is my signature.
      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 "<HTML><HEAD><title>Guess the number.</title></HEAD><BODY>"; 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; # print "The answer was $random. And so is your IQ.\n\n\nSTUPID +!!\n\n";exit; } } print "The answer was $random.<br> And so is your IQ.<br><br><br>STUPI +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>
        Howdy yo! thanks for taking a look at it. I'll be on my sisters computer now so i need d/l another editor. I will be back shortly.
