I'm not even certain if I am wording my title correctly for this question but this is my predicament. I'm trying to get input from the user, it could possibly be a float value like so ###.## or it could be a character value like DNA, I/P, or F, or it could be a sequence of integers ranging from 1 to 5 of them, so "1 2 3 4 5" or "54, 23, 5123, -50, 12" are all valid. I don't understand how I would go about doing this.
I've noticed that this forum doesn't take too kindly to people asking questions without supplying source code of attempts first, I don't know how to attempt this, nor do I want it hand fed to me, I just need a poke or nudge in the right direction because I can't see how this would work without trying to shove different data types into the wrong variable.
