In reference to http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=pascal&qid=10320474 

I want the output to say something like
writeln(Great! You got these states in 1 try: ', states)

For the other part I believe I can use what I already got.

This should do it.  Creates another file that puts the states into it.


program form2;

var
  state : string;
  capital : string;
  Statefile : text;
  States : text;
  tries : integer;
  guess : string;
  correct_guess : integer;
  correct_state : string;

procedure GETDATA (var localStatefile: text;
var localstate: string;
var localcapital: string);

begin
  readln(localStatefile, localstate);
  readln(localStatefile, localcapital);
end; {GETDATA}

procedure GUESS_CAPITAL (var tries: integer;
guess : string; var local_correct_guess : integer);

begin{GUESS_CAPITAL}
  tries := 0;
  repeat
    tries := tries + 1;
    write ('Give capital of ', state, ' ' );
    readln (guess);
  until (guess = capital) or (tries = 4);
  if guess = capital then
    begin
      writeln ('Nice work.  You got it on try ', tries);
      inc(local_correct_guess);
      if tries = 1 then
        writeln(States, guess);
    end
  else
    begin{until}
      writeln ('You did not get it in 4 tries or less');
      writeln ('The correct answer is ' , capital)
    end; {until}
end; {GUESS_CAPITAL}

procedure GUESSES (local_correct_guess : integer);
begin
    writeln ('You have guessed ', local_correct_guess, ' states in 4 or fewer tries ');
end; {GUESSES}

begin {main}
  assign(Statefile, 'a:\state2.dat');
  reset(Statefile);
  assign(States, 'a:\state3.dat');
  rewrite(States);
  correct_guess := 0;
  while not seekeof (Statefile) do
    begin
      GETDATA(Statefile, state, capital);
      GUESS_CAPITAL (tries, guess, correct_guess);
      GUESSES(correct_guess)
    end;
  close(Statefile);
  close(States);
  reset(States);
  writeln('Great! You got these states in 1 try:');
  while not eof(States) do
    begin
     readln(States, correct_state);
     writeln(correct_state);
    end;
  close(States);
end.
