I need an example of how to create pseudocode using arrays to accomplish the following tasks:


Read and store user information in an array
Store 10 random winning numbers in an array
Compare user lottery numbers with winning numbers
Print names of the winners

Thanks!

do x times ( x = the amount of users)
- read user information
- store user information
do ten times
- generate random winning number
- store generated number in array
do x times
- set flag to true (true = got all numbers correct)
- do y times (y = the amount of lottery numbers)
- compare number to next generated number
- if not equal
- set flag to false
- if flag = true (still true, actually)
- print userName " is a winner!"

How would you create this pseudocode using the while statement using the same information below?


do x times ( x = the amount of users)
- read user information
- store user information
do ten times
- generate random winning number
- store generated number in array
do x times
- set flag to true (true = got all numbers correct)
- do y times (y = the amount of lottery numbers)
- compare number to next generated number
- if not equal
- set flag to false
- if flag = true (still true, actually)
- print userName " is a winner!"

several remarks: you asked for pseudocode, I gave you pseudocode. if you want to know how to code it, don't you think it would give us a big hand if you told us what language you are (intending to be) using?

well ... the first questions that come to my mind are:
1. what language?
2. what have you tried yourself?
3. why didn't you post this thread in the forum for that specific language?
