The Psychic Computer Network

One stormy night, as Dionne worked diligently on her CSC 126 labs, a bolt of lightning struck the house. The power surge raced through her computer, causing it to emit a strange glow. A strange new program appeared on her computer called "psychic". Dionne told all her friends that this program was capable of predicting the future. If they wanted to use the program, for a small fee, they could download it from her web site.

Objective - To write a program that will predict the future

Method - 1. Use the main procedure to

a.       Prompt the user for his/her lucky number. Use this number as input to the srand function found in cstdlib

b.      Prompt the user for which life topic he wishes his predictions based.  Based on the user's response call one of three functions. Suggestions are love, finance, and school, but you may use three of your own choosing. Use a nested if-else statement to control which function is called.

2. Each function will

c.       Call the rand function

d.      Use value generated by the rand function and modulo division as the selector expression in a switch statement.

e.       The switch statement will print out the predictions.

f.       Allow for five different predictions per function.

3. Prompt the user to see if they want another prediction. Keep executing the program until the user tells you to quit.  Make sure that you code for all possible user inputs, including wrong ones.

Hand In -

1.      A copy of your program

2.      A copy of the output. As the output scrolls past the black box, keep selecting the output and pasting it into the text editor as you go.  Make sure that the output shows that your program will work under all possible scenarios. You may have to run the program more than once to do this.

Extra Credit:  Print the, "I am looking into my crystal ball." statement.  Then print the "hour glass" as in the demo version.  Hint use the clock( ) function in the ctime library,


Have fun!!
