I am writing this program for my computer class. I am having a problem with my do/while loop. I can go through my main IF statement, but when I go through the loop a second time, I enter 'S' os 's' for computer type it skips past the main IF statement. Do i need to clear my computer variable before going through the loop again, if so how do I do that. Please help.

Thanks,

Ergh, It's very difficult to read your code like that. Isn't there a code option or something?

Found it.

When typing code, wrap it in [CODE] and [/CODE] tags; and then indent stuff using the [INDENT] and [/INDENT]; for example:

// This is some code:

if( something == true || somethingelse != false )
{
[INDENT]
// This has been indented using the Indent tags.
printf('blah blah blah');
[/INDENT]
}

Remember, you can also go to the user control panel, and somewhere in your preference options, you can set to use a WYSIWYG editor to edit posts. Unfortunately, I have to run off to class in a few minutes, so don't really have time to look at this program right now. :(
