    isdigit function

    Hi I hope someone can help me with this. I am working on a program that asks the user to select an item from the menu 1-6. I have a while statement that returns to the loop if the user selects any other number. while(userAns<1)||(userAns>6)) I am trying to create an isdigit if statement that will return to the loop if the user selects a char. I have: if(isdigit(c)) I declared my char c, and have the #include<ctype.h> Should the while statement and the if statement be together? The while statement works but the if just loops. Thanks [EMAIL=joejonsmom]function isdigit What am I missing?

    isdigit

    Hi actually I got this to work finally but now my if statement to make the loop work is not.

    }
    printf("Would you like to select another option?\n\n");
    printf("1=Yes and 2=No\n\n",ans);
    scanf("%d",&ans);

    if(ans==1)
    clrsc();
    else if(ans!=1)
    return 0;
    }

    I know this is something really easy but I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks

     printf("1=Yes and 2=No\n\n",ans);  // Why?

    Perhaps this old post may be of interest.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
