C tutorial - Number guessing game - [ID:681] (8/8)

in series: C programming tutorial.

video tutorial by gasto, added 04/08

Series ID: 138 Video ID: 681

We start programming more serious programs, knowing more about standard function calls, keyboard shortcuts, modulus operator, the general planning and design of a program, loops, and the continue and break keywords used in loops. We finish the program without any errors. What about making your own program following the same design, but adding some statments, to add features, for example: print on console how many times did it took the user to guess the number; print compliments to users depending on how much attempts did it take, or how much time passed since the beginning of running the program, or both. Remember all this videos are in vain if you do not put in practice the theory you have just learnt.

Take your rehearsal test

// numguess.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.

#include "stdafx.h"

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
	int unsigned answer_num, guess_num;
	answer_num = (rand()%11);
	printf("Guess a number from zero to ten : " );
	while (1){
			scanf("%i", &guess_num);
			if (guess_num>=0 || guess_num<11){
				if (guess_num<answer_num){
				printf("Try a higher number! ");
				else if (guess_num>answer_num){
				printf("Try a lower number! ");
				else if (guess_num==answer_num){
					printf("You are the champion!, the number "
					"guessed was %d!", answer_num);
				printf("assert that the number inserted is between 0 and 10");
	//time_t * tim;
	//printf("%d", *tim);
	return 0;

Unfortunately I have no terminal with Unix, although some Ubuntu(Linux) GCC tutorials could turn out a good idea.

Can you do some system calls programming for Unix?

Nice tutorial. I guess it's intended for beginners, but it's a good review too.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for gasto
