    tictactoe symbol entering problem

    Hi,

    I'm writing a code for tictactoe game, my code compiles, but when I try to input the values, it doesn't work properly.

    here's function for the input.

    Code:
    void enter_symbol(char ttt[][3], int player)
    {
            int row, col;
            while(1)
            {
                    printf("Player 1 plese specify where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it\n");
                    scanf("%d", &row);
                    scanf("%d", &col);
                    if(ttt[row][col] ==' ')
                    {   
                            ttt[row][col]='x';
                            break;
                    }
                    else
                      printf("Position you specified is already taken, try again\n");
            }
     
            while(1)
            {
                    printf("Player 2 plese speficy where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it\n");
                    scanf("%d", &row);
                    scanf("%d", &col);
                    if(ttt[row][col] ==' ')
                    {
                            ttt[row][col]='o';
                            break;
                    }
                    else
                      printf("Position you specified is already taken, try again\n");
            }
    }

    Here's what i get when i run it

    Code:
    Player 1 plese specify where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it
    11
    12
    Position you specified is already taken, try again
    Player 1 plese specify where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it
    13^H^H
    hulk:~/Lab07>tictactoe
    Player 1 plese specify where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it
    11
    12
    Position you specified is already taken, try again
    Player 1 plese specify where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it
    12
    13
    Position you specified is already taken, try again
    Player 1 plese specify where you would like to enter a symbol, and enter it
    can you see what's wrong with it? I can't.

    Thanks

    Why are you entering twelve and thirteen, when the only space allowed is zero through two?

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
