    Hi-Lo Game

    Does anyone know where I can find a guide or reference on a Hi-Lo game? The game is to produce a random integer between 1 and 100 and provide the user with seven tries to guess the generated number. if the user guesses the correct number a message should appear that congratulates them. If the user guesses the wrong number, the message "try again" should appear and indicate whether the guess was too high or too low and also display the number of guesses left. After seven incorrect guesses, the computer should display the message, "sorry, you lost." and display the correct number.

    I know there is a source out there, but all I could find was sources in other programming languages.

    What you've described is a binary search. Very easy to code one up - give it a try.

    This can be done in about 15 lines... less than an hour with a coffee break at half time...
    I'm guessing you've already wasted more than that ripping up the web looking for some scoop and poop code.

    Really... if you want to be a programmer, learn to program... not to steal.
