    Exclamation Looping Failed "Second Problem"

    my looping code failed,
    it reads unlimited number readin,
    whats wrong with it i didnt figure it out,
    here's my problem
    Code:
    int main()
              {
      int x;
      int y;
      int n;
      int m=0;
      printf("First Number =");scanf("%d",&x);
      printf("Divide Number =");scanf("%d",&y);
      printf("Loop Number =");scanf("%d",&n);
      while(m<n)   {
      x+=y;
      printf("%d,",x);
                        }
              }
    Thats for while loop,
    here is with do while loop,
    Code:
    int main()
              {
      int x;
      int y;
      int n;
      int m=1;
      printf("First Number =");scanf("%d",&x);
      printf("Divide Number =");scanf("%d",&y);
      printf("Loop Number =");scanf("%d",&n);
      do{
      x=x+y;
      printf("%d,",x);
         } while(m<n);
              }
    okay, sorry if my code is "unreadable" like other guy said yesterday to me. This the best i can do to explain my problem.
    Any ideas?

    If you can't be bothered to indent properly, have a program do it for you until you can.

    Basically all your loops have the same problem. m < n is true forever, because neither variable changes.

    you need to increase the value of m in the while loop so that it reach n; to end the loop. Using m+=1 at the end of the while loop would help.

    Code:
    would,   youreaD           a bookwhere;  all rules of-puNctuation-were?simply    ignOred   
    
    !this Is, read-able.  after    
    a 
    fashion but'very'unpleasant "toread isnt      It,

    Any good IDE can do the formatting for you. Even if you have a terrible IDE, that's no excuse. I started coding C around 1990, and even without tools to format code, people back then managed to make legible code by manual use of the tab key.

    Very simple - every time you enter a new set of braces, you increase by one tab. When you leave that block, you decrease by one tab.

    Code:
    int main()
    {
        int x;
        int y;
        int n;
        int m=0;
        printf("First Number =");
        scanf("%d",&x);
        printf("Divide Number =");
        scanf("%d",&y);
        printf("Loop Number =");
        scanf("%d",&n);
        while(m<n)
        {
            x+=y;
            printf("%d,",x);
        }
    }

    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    Compare your version from post #1 with Cat's version in post #4. Don't you see the difference?
