# Guess the number/With feedback

**Guess the number/With feedback**

You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

- Task

Write a game (computer program) that follows the following rules:

- The computer chooses a number between given set limits.
- The player is asked for repeated guesses until the the target number is guessed correctly
- At each guess, the computer responds with whether the guess is:

- higher than the target,
- equal to the target,
- less than the target, or
- the input was inappropriate.

## 11l[edit]

```
V (target_min, target_max) = (1, 100)
print("Guess my target number that is between #. and #. (inclusive).\n".format(target_min, target_max))
V target = random:(target_min..target_max)
V (answer, i) = (target_min - 1, 0)
L answer != target
i++
V txt = input(‘Your guess(#.): ’.format(i))
X.try
answer = Int(txt)
X.catch ValueError
print(‘ I don't understand your input of '#.' ?’.format(txt))
L.continue
I answer < target_min | answer > target_max
print(‘ Out of range!’)
L.continue
I answer == target
print(‘ Ye-Haw!!’)
L.break
I answer < target {print(‘ Too low.’)}
I answer > target {print(‘ Too high.’)}
print("\nThanks for playing.")
```

- Output:

Guess my target number that is between 1 and 100 (inclusive). Your guess(1): kk I don't understand your input of 'kk' ? Your guess(2): 0 Out of range! Your guess(3): 100 Too high. Your guess(4): 101 Out of range! Your guess(5): 50 Too high. Your guess(6): 25 Too high. Your guess(7): 13 Too low. Your guess(8): 16 Too low. Your guess(9): 18 Too low. Your guess(10): 20 Too low. Your guess(11): 23 Too low. Your guess(12): 24 Ye-Haw!! Thanks for playing.

### QB64[edit]

Note that `INPUT`

only allows the user to type things that can fit in the variable it's storing to. Since we're storing to a byte, we don't have to worry about the user typing any non-numbers.

```
DIM secretNumber AS _BYTE ' the secret number
DIM guess AS _BYTE ' the player's guess
RANDOMIZE TIMER ' set a seed based on system time
secretNumber%% = INT(RND * 10) + 1 ' a random value between 1 and 10
PRINT "The computer has chosen a secret number between 1 and 10."
DO
PRINT "What is your guess";
INPUT guess%%
SELECT CASE guess%%
CASE IS < 1, IS > 10
PRINT "Please enter a number between 1 and 10!"
_CONTINUE
CASE IS < secretNumber%%
PRINT "Your guess is LOWER than the target."
CASE IS > secretNumber%%
PRINT "Your guess is HIGHER than the target."
END SELECT
LOOP UNTIL guess%% = secretNumber%%
PRINT "You won!"; secretNumber%%; "was the secret number!"
```

- Output:

The computer has chosen a secret number between 1 and 10. What is your guess? -1 Please enter a number between 1 and 10! What is your guess? 11 Please enter a number between 1 and 10! What is your guess? 1 Your guess is LOWER than the target. What is your guess? 10 Your guess is HIGHER than the target. What is your guess? 5 Your guess is HIGHER than the target. What is your guess? 3 Your guess is HIGHER than the target. What is your guess? 2 You won! 2 was the secret number!

## Groovy[edit]

Based on the Java implementation

```
def rand = new Random() // java.util.Random
def range = 1..100 // Range (inclusive)
def number = rand.nextInt(range.size()) + range.from // get a random number in the range
println "The number is in ${range.toString()}" // print the range
def guess
while (guess != number) { // keep running until correct guess
try {
print 'Guess the number: '
guess = System.in.newReader().readLine() as int // read the guess in as int
switch (guess) { // check the guess against number
case { it < number }: println 'Your guess is too low'; break
case { it > number }: println 'Your guess is too high'; break
default: println 'Your guess is spot on!'; break
}
} catch (NumberFormatException ignored) { // catches all input that is not a number
println 'Please enter a number!'
}
}
```

Example:

```
The number is in 1..100
Guess the number: ghfvkghj
Please enter a number!
Guess the number: 50
Your guess is too low
Guess the number: 75
Your guess is too low
Guess the number: 83
Your guess is too low
Guess the number: 90
Your guess is too low
Guess the number: 95
Your guess is too high
Guess the number: 92
Your guess is spot on!

## J[edit]

```
require 'misc'
game=: verb define
assert. y -: 1 >. <.{.y
n=: 1 + ?y
smoutput 'Guess my integer, which is bounded by 1 and ',":y
whilst. -. x -: n do.
x=. {. 0 ". prompt 'Guess: '
if. 0 -: x do. 'Giving up.' return. end.
smoutput (*x-n){::'You win.';'Too high.';'Too low.'
end.
)
```

Note: in computational contexts, J programmers typically avoid loops. However, in contexts which involve progressive input and output and where event handlers are too powerful (too complicated), loops are probably best practice.

Example use:

```
game 100
Guess my integer, which is bounded by 1 and 100
Guess: 64
Too high.
Guess: 32
Too low.
Guess: 48
Too high.
Guess: 40
Too low.
Guess: 44
You win.
```

## Java[edit]

```
import java.util.Random;
import java.util.Scanner;
public class Main
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
Random random = new Random();
long from = 1;
long to = 100;
int randomNumber = random.nextInt(to - from + 1) + from;
int guessedNumber = 0;
System.out.printf("The number is between %d and %d.\n", from, to);
do
{
System.out.print("Guess what the number is: ");
guessedNumber = scan.nextInt();
if (guessedNumber > randomNumber)
System.out.println("Your guess is too high!");
else if (guessedNumber < randomNumber)
System.out.println("Your guess is too low!");
else
System.out.println("You got it!");
} while (guessedNumber != randomNumber);
}
}
```

Demonstration:

The number is between 1 and 100. Guess what the number is: 50 Your guess is too high! Guess what the number is: 25 Your guess is too high! Guess what the number is: 17 Your guess is too high! Guess what the number is: 10 Your guess is too high! Guess what the number is: 5 Your guess is too low! Guess what the number is: 7 You got it!

## jq[edit]

**Also works with gojq, the Go implementation of jq.**

In the following, a time-based PRNG is used as that is sufficient for the task. For a different PRNG, see e.g. Guess_the_number#jq

```
# $min and $max can be specified on the command line but for illustrative purposes:
def minmax: [0, 20];
# low-entropy PRNG in range($a;$b) i.e. $a <= prng < $b
# (no checking)
def prng($a;$b): $a + ((now * 1000000 | trunc) % ($b - $a) );
def play:
# extract a number if possible
def str2num:
try tonumber catch null;
minmax as [$min, $max]
| prng($min; $max) as $number
| "The computer has chosen a whole number between \($min) and \($max) inclusive.",
"Please guess the number or type q to quit:",
(label $out
| foreach inputs as $guess (null;
if $guess == "q" then null, break $out
else ($guess|str2num) as $g
| if $g == null or $g < 0 then "Please enter a non-negative integer or q to quit"
elif $g < $min or $g > $max then "That is out of range. Try again"
elif $g > $number then "Too high"
elif $g < $number then "Too low"
else true, break $out
end
end)
| if type == "string" then .
elif . == true then "Spot on!", "Let's start again.\n", play
else empty
end );
play
```

**Transcript:**

$ jq -nRr -f guess-the-number-with-feedback.jq The computer has chosen a whole number between 0 and 20 inclusive. Please guess the number or type q to quit: 10 Too low 16 Too high 14 Too high 12 Too high 11 Spot on! Let's start again. The computer has chosen a whole number between 0 and 20 inclusive.

## ooRexx[edit]

While the program for REXX works perfectly well with ooRexx, here is a version written in an alternate (my) style.

Select instead of a series of If's simple comparison instead of strict different indentations. entering ? shows the number we are looking for

This program should, of course, also work with all other Rexxes

```

do forever
say
say "guess the number, it's between" low 'and' high '(inclusive)',
'or enter quit to end the game.'
say
pull g
say
g=space(g)
Select
When g='' then iterate
When g='QUIT' then exit
When g='?' then Do

Iterate
End
When \datatype(g,'W') then do

end
When g<low then do

## Plain English[edit]

```
The low number is 1.
The high number is 100.
To run:
Start up.
Play the guessing game.
Wait for the escape key.
Shut down.
To play the guessing game:
Pick a secret number between the low number and the high number.
Write "I chose a secret number between " then the low number then " and " then the high number then "." then the return byte on the console.
Loop.
Ask the user for a number.
If the number is the secret number, break.
If the number is less than the secret number, write " Too low." on the console.
If the number is greater than the secret number, write " Too high." on the console.
Repeat.
Write " Well guessed!" on the console.
To ask the user for a number:
Write "Your guess? " to the console without advancing.
Read a string from the console.
If the string is not any integer, write " Guess must be an integer." on the console; repeat.
Convert the string to the number.
If the number is less than the low number, write " Guess can't be lower than " then the low number then "." on the console; repeat.
If the number is greater than the high number, write " Guess can't be higher than " then the high number then "." on the console; repeat.
```

- Output:

I chose a secret number between 1 and 100. Your guess? apple Guess must be an integer. Your guess? 3.14159 Guess must be an integer. Your guess? -50 Guess can't be lower than 1. Your guess? 150 Guess can't be higher than 100. Your guess? 50 Too high. Your guess? 25 Too low. Your guess? 37 Too low. Your guess? 43 Too low. Your guess? 46 Too low. Your guess? 48 Well guessed!

Input in the standard Prolog top level is terminated with a `.`: E.g.,

```

Guess an integer between 1 and 10.
Guess the number: a.
Invalid input.
Guess the number: 3.
Your guess is too low.

## R[edit]

The previous solution lacked the required checks for if the input was appropriate, was bugged if low==high (R's sample function works differently if the input is of length 1), and behaved very strangely if low or high weren't whole numbers.

This solution works on the assumption that the number to be found is an integer and also assumes that the upper and lower bounds are distinct integers used inclusively. For example, this means that low=4 and high=5 should be a solvable case, but low=high=4 will throw an error. See Talk page entry dated 1st June 2020.

```
guessANumber <- function(low, high)
{
boundryErrorCheck(low, high)
goal <- sample(low:high, size = 1)
guess <- getValidInput(paste0("I have a whole number between ", low, " and ", high, ". What's your guess? "))
while(guess != goal)
{
if(guess < low || guess > high){guess <- getValidInput("Out of range! Try again "); next}
if(guess > goal){guess <- getValidInput("Too high! Try again "); next}
if(guess < goal){guess <- getValidInput("Too low! Try again "); next}
}
"Winner!"
}
boundryErrorCheck <- function(low, high)
{
if(!is.numeric(low) || as.integer(low) != low) stop("Lower bound must be an integer. Try again.")
if(!is.numeric(high) || as.integer(high) != high) stop("Upper bound must be an integer. Try again.")
if(high < low) stop("Upper bound must be strictly greater than lower bound. Try again.")
if(low == high) stop("This game is impossible to lose. Try again.")
invisible()
}
#R's system for checking if numbers are integers is lacking (e.g. is.integer(1) returns FALSE)
#so we need this next function.
#A better way to check for integer inputs can be found in is.interger's docs, but this is easier to read.
#Note that readline outputs the user's input as a string, hence the need for type.convert.
getValidInput <- function(requestText)
{
guess <- type.convert(readline(requestText))
while(!is.numeric(guess) || as.integer(guess) != guess){guess <- type.convert(readline("That wasn't an integer! Try again "))}

ZX Spectrum Basic has no [[:Category:Conditional loops|conditional loop]] constructs, so we have to emulate them here using IF and GO TO.
1 LET n=INT (RND*10)+1
2 INPUT "Guess a number that is between 1 and 10: ",g: IF g=n THEN PRINT "That's my number!": STOP
3 IF g<n THEN PRINT "That guess is too low!": GO TO 2
4 IF g>n THEN PRINT "That guess is too high!": GO TO 2
