please tell me how to doo this:
writw a program for a game in which the user guesses what random number between 1 and 1000 the computer has 'thought',untill he or she has found the correct number. The computer should tell the user for each guess whether it was too high, too low or spot on1 The program should also print out how many guesses the user had before the right answer.

I have a program extremely close to this,  I will quickly write a program for you, and send it.  I am answering now.  I will write it NOW.  It will be ready in 45 min.

Never mind, it is deep into december there are no more classes.  Ok, here it comes:

It is very commented.  every line nearly. :)  so don't panic.


program Randomnumbers; {procedureless guessing game, simple as possible by                                                                  G. du Toit  g_dutoit@hotmail.com}

uses
crt;

var
UserNumber : longint; {declaring variable which the user will input to}
CPUNumber  : longint; {declaring variable which the CPU will input it's random number }
RangeMin, RangeMax   : longint; {declaring variables which the user inputs his desired limits }
Counter    : integer; {I am sure no person will take 100 guesses or more. if so make into longint}
begin
      clrscr; {guess}
      randomize; {init randomizing}
      write('Between what numbers do you want to guess in:');
      read(RangeMin, RangeMax);        {can be written read(RangeMin); read(RangeMax)}
      CPUNumber:=random(RangeMax-RangeMin)+RangeMin;
            {The user can type  10 20  or 10 return press 20;  both will work.}
            {random(x); is the random definition, it generates a random number from
            0 -> x; Now, for min and max. random(RangeMax) is from 0->RangeMax
            but
            random(RangeMax) 0->Max  random(RangeMax-RangeMin)+RangeMin
            say for instance
            min 10 max 15
            random(15) will produce 0->15 this is below 10,
            random(15) will produce 0->15 but PLUS min.  this is now (0->15)+10
            makes 10->25 obvious enough? but now it exceeds the limit.
            random(RangeMax-RangeMin)+RangeMin
            NOW Random(15-10) is random(5) 0->5, now Plus 10 10->15, hey presto
            a limit.}
      repeat
            write('Guess: ');  {prompts 'guess'}
            Counter:=Counter+1;  { or inc counter this climbs by one everytime this
            loop passes by this instruction}
            read(UserNumber);  {reads user 's number}
            if (UserNumber>CPUNumber) then {checking if User number is greater than Comp's}
                  writeln('Smaller');
            if (UserNumber<CPUNumber) then {Checking if smaller, then prompt bigger}
                  writeln('Bigger');
            if (UserNumber=CPUNumber) then {check for equality}
                  writeln('Spot ON! :) The number of guesses: ', Counter); {displays amount of guesses}
      until ((CPUNumber=UserNumber) or (UserNumber=-1)); {repeat fall out statement}
      {the conditions for loop to end, if equality or if user gives up.}
      if (UserNumber=-1) then
            write('Why did you give up! Here is my number: ',CPUNumber); {diplays message with cpu number}
      readkey; {checks for keyboard input before ending, so that you may read the previous message;}
      {last semicolon not necessary but good practice.  Hope this not an assignment that you were given:)
      }
end.

well, yet another solution :P I think comments are not necessary.

Program Guess_Test;

uses
  crt;

const
  MAX_TRIES = 100;

var
  CorrectTip,
  CurrentTipVal : Word;
  CurrentTipStr : string[4];
  Counter : Byte;
  Found : Boolean;
  Code : Integer;

begin
  ClrScr;
  Randomize;
  CorrectTip := Random(1001);
  if CorrectTip = 0 then
    CorrectTip := 1;
  Counter := 1;
  Found := False;
  repeat
    WriteLn;
    WriteLn('Enter your Tip (',Counter,') : ');
    ReadLn(CurrentTipStr);
    if CurrentTipStr = '' then
      WriteLn('You didn''t enter anything');
    Val(CurrentTipStr, CurrentTipVal, Code);
    if Code <> 0 then
      begin
        if ((CurrentTipStr = 'q') or (CurrentTipStr = 'Q')) then
          begin
            WriteLn('You aborted after attempt #',Counter);
            Halt(1);
          end
        else
          WriteLn('hmh, that was not a valid Number');
      end
    else
      begin
        if CurrentTipStr <> '' then
          begin
            if CurrentTipVal < CorrectTip then
              WriteLn('hmh, that was too less');
            if CurrentTipVal > CorrectTip then
              WriteLn('hmh, that was too high');
            if CurrentTipVal = CorrectTip then
              begin
                Found := True;
                WriteLn('CORRECT NUMBER FOUND');
              end;
            if not Found then
              inc(Counter);
          end;
      end;
  until ((Counter = MAX_TRIES) or (Found));
  if Counter = MAX_TRIES then
    begin
      WriteLn('You could not find the Number after 100 attempts');
      halt(0);
    end;
  if Found then
    begin
      WriteLn('You have found the Number after ',Counter,' attempts');
      halt(0);
    end;
end.

but you did not nclude procedures in the program, making it a lttlie hard to de-bug.

Oh, you wanted procedures, what's to debug anyway, it's fully tested. No bugs, whadda I look like m*cros*ft? :)
I will send ye a copy of a procedurized one if you wish.  just ask
