    Simple Loop

    Im trying to write a C program to prompt the user to enter 9 integers and then display them in 3 lines all seperated by commas.
    example:
    1, 2, 3,4,5, 6, 7, 8, 9

    1,2,3
    4,5,6
    7,8,9

    This is what i have so far

    #include <stdio.h>

    void main()
    {

    printf("Please enter your first number: ");

    First of all, never use void main, it is always int main (read the FAQ for answer why). Second: The topics you will want to read more about would be: loops, arrays and getting input from user. I suggest going over the tutorials here (C programming.com - Your Resource for C and C++ Programming) for details about those topics.

    For a start in how a basic loop is constructed here is some pseudo-ish code:

    Code:
    while(someConditionIsFulfilled)
    {
        // Do something
    }
    This will loop while someConditionIsFulfilled is true (ie, not equals 0).

    I think we're already in a loop here.

    Looks that way. Nobody is going to do your homework for you. You will have to show some more effort and a willingness to learn. Go do what i told you in my first post and come back when you run into more specific problems.

    This will loop until someConditionIsFulfilled is true (ie, not equals 0).
    You mean the opposite - it will loop until the condition is false.
