    New to C++, writing first script, need help finding bug

    First off, please don't hate on me I know I'm a total noob! I keep getting an error when I try to compile this and I can't seem to find out why. I'm reviewing the book I purchased to help me, but I still can't find out whats going wrong. I know its something small and dumb.. Can ANYONE help

    If you could please point out what needs to be corrected and why, it would be extremely helpful to me. Thank you so much in advance.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
        int secret_number, guess, count;
        
        cout << "Let's play a guessing game!"  << endl << endl;
        cout << "I'll pick a number from 0 to 9, inclusive." << endl;
        cout << "Good luck!" << endl  << endl;
    
    secret_number = rand() % 10;
    count = 0;
    do { 
         if (count)
            cout << "Sorry, that's not it!" << endl;
            cout << "enter your guess: ";
            cin >> guess;
    { while ( guess != secret_number ) && ( ++count <= 9 ) );
    
    
    if ( guess == secret_number )
    {
         cout << "You got it in " << count << "guesses!" < endl;
         cout << "Good work!" << endl;
    }
    else
    {
        cout << "Sorry, you used up all your guesses!" << endl;
        cout << "The secret number was: " << secret_number << endl;
        cout << "Better luck next time!" << endl;
    }
    
        system("PAUSE");
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }

    I'd say the "curly" bits, to be more specific.

    Thumbs up

    I can see that 3 errors from here. Check the curly braces in the while. Also, one of your cout is lack of one more "<". I'm sure that like me, some others can see the errors. But is up to you to find them. Please, check this out and tell me what you tried to fix and how you did it and maybe I will be more specific.
