now do i have to make any other directories to go along with this or no?

i get an error this is what it says

Can't modify concatenation (.) or string in scalar assignment at line 23, near "200;"

Wow this is what comes up when i open my webpage..can anyone help me so that this game can actually work?

Actually, I think zortec's post was exactly what you asked for. It is a PERL script that rolls craps. It actually does 1000 iterations of craps and then gives you the statistics of how you did. You didn't specify you were looking for an interactive version of craps. :)

You also didn't specify you were looking for a version of craps that could be run from a web browser. All of that can be done, it just takes a bit more coding. The output that you got on the webpage was actually all 1000 iterations and the final statistics, but it looks like there may have been something wrong with the execution because the final statistics were all zero.

Well i just want like a button on so when you click it 2 numbers come out resembling a dice and something that keeps track of how much i win and lose. If i get to 5 dollars game over and if i get to 1000 dollars game over. How can i do this i still havent got an answer and i've made this same post in like 5 other threads. Can anyone help me?

I think the reason why you haven't gotten an answer is because this isn't really a question, it's a request. You're asking someone to write a craps game for you to put on the web. While there may be someone out there interested in doing this as a challenge for themselves, I don't know many people who want to write code for someone else for free.

Have you tried to write this code yourself? Is there something specific we can help you with?

The code is written...all's i need is to figure out how to make it work like make a form with some sort of button so when i click it the two numbers come up and tell me if i win or lose and if i do the money goes up or down

Web forms driven by Perl have a lot more to them than a simple shell script, and to make it interactive (with a running balance of money) you will need a way to store the data between the times when a user clicks the button to roll the dice. Post the code you have so far, and we can tell you what you are missing.

This must have all the basics of the game completed and functioning. This means that the game must generate the two dice values and display an image for each individual dice. Set the correct conditions for the first throw to determine a win or a loss or the setting of a point. If the point is set the play must continue with consecutive throws until the point is matched or a 7 is thrown and a win or a loss is determined.

These look like instructions for homework. Sorry, but I don't want to do someone's homework for them. Additionally, from what you pasted in here, you just copied zortec's code and added the second and third line. I don't see anything that you wrote yourself.

I'll give you the following steps to a CGI program, though:

1. The program should give the user an initial page with an HTML form and "Submit" button to indicate a roll

2. The program should then perform the action of the roll, and then provide a secondary results page, and so-on.

3. You'll have to pass the value of the player's account, the roll number, and the first number rolled to each page. You might look at using hidden tags for that.

4. On the final page, you should give the player an option to play again.

Good luck!

I just need a page that has two images of dice and when i hit the submit button or whatever the images change and it tells me if i win or lose whats the easiest way to do that. I wont even worry about the bank, can i still use this script?

I am going to echo what roswell1329 has already said. It is not very clear what you are asking help on. From what I can see, you are looking for someone to do your homework and that is not the purpose of this forum. Sorry, but you have to do some of the work yourself and not just copy other code and call it your own.

Its not even about the code right now. Just wanted to know how to make images change when i hit a button and tell me if i win or lose. Thats all

Actually, it is about the code. Adding images to an online application adds another layer of complexity. You would then have to keep track of which image you're displaying based on the current state and you would have to change the images based on the result. It's a whole separate process, and just asking the question gives me the impression that you really don't understand what you're asking.

Thats exactly right what you just said finally someone understands what im looking for but how would i go about this in this script?

Do you really understand what you're asking or are you just saying that we have it right so that we can give you the solution to your class problem? I think it would help you out considerably if you thought about what you wanted to ask. You are just all over the place now.

i want some type of form and when i click this "lets call it roll botton" two images on the screen change and depending on what numbers come up i win or lose.

I think we're talking in circles here. I'm afraid what you are asking for is beyond the scope of this discussion forum. You are obviously a newcomer to programming which is great, but you are asking us to explain several concepts of web programming that I doubt anyone here wants to take the time to explain. Good luck to you.

Sure. That's got to be it.

Keep thinking that if it makes you feel better, but I'm not going to do the work for you. If you have a specific question about a specific piece of code that you have written, my offer to help still stands.

I just dont know where to start on this project. I know if i want images to appear and when i hit a button and change i have to save all the images in my directory, preferably a picture of all sides of the dice. Then say if i roll a 7 when those two dice add up to 7 or 11 i win and something comes up telling me that i win. When i roll say a 2,3 or 12 i lose and say text tells me that i lose.

How would you make images appear on a normal web page using HTML? Probably something like this:

<img src="die1.jpg" />

So, if you wanted your script to make an image visible in the browser, you'd have to make your script create an HTML tag like the one above to indicate what image to show like this:

print "<img src=\"dice1.jpg\" \/>\n";

If you don't know what image you are going to display at any given time, you may have to use a variable in the filename like this:

print "<img src=\"dice" . $dice_side . "\.jpg\" \/>\n";

The "button" you keep mentioning is going to be a "submit" button that is connected to an HTML form that references your script as the action. The function of that button is to submit any values provided in the form to the script referenced as the action. Google "html form tag" for more details.
