Default Help with Loop - 03-05-2013, 12:36 PM

I am working on a new world and I have it almost done, but I can't seem to figure out the loop. Here is the instructions given:

"Once your program has executed ask the user if they want it to run again. If they inputs "yes" have it run again. Use a loop to do this so that it will run continually as long as the user keeps entering "yes" at the end."

I have tried moving the loop, but can't figure out what to do. If the user inputs "no", I need the loop to end.

I have attached my file.

Have you looked at the while loop in your class yet? This is a classic while loop problem in which the while loop is guarded by a test of the value of the user input...

Your code will look something like

stringVariable = Should the loop finish (yes or no)

while (stringVariable = "yes")

// code

stringVariable = Should the loop finish (yes or no)
