Dear Programmers

Could you please supply me with a piece of code in Pascal (Turbo 7) to answer the following problem:

Ask the user to input a number.  If the number is less than 0 or more than 100 the user is asked to
re-enter the number.

Or did you misunderstood the teacher?

We're not allowed to do your homework. I'm sorry if my messages were a bit weird and stupid, but we're not allowed to do that for you. Homework is intended to be made by you as to learn from it...

It's a repeat loop



repeat

code

until  number_meets_requirements

OK, now you have to work out what number_meets_requirements is.

Hmm, if this is homework or schoolwork which is what it seems, you have serious problems if you don't understand this type of pascal construct.

That's the answer:

program GetNumber;

var
  Number: integer;
begin
  write('Enter a number (0..100): ');
  repeat
    readln(Number);
  until (Number > 0) and (Number < 100);
end.

If people will keep doing his work for him he'll never learn to do something this simple himself.

First of all thanks to eddiejr,   I was aware of the code but I wanted to be sure that I answered correctly.  This was my first time.  Next time I paste the code and ask for your comments.
