the code should do the following : Displays a welcome message with my name Tracks the number of guesses and displays it Prompts to the player if the guessed number is lower or greater than the secret number

Examines whether the input is a valid number. If an invalid number is entered (e.g., entering an alphabet letter, except ‘q’, or the input number is out of the range), ask the player to input again. The player does not lose a chance

Informs player when he or she guesses a number that has already been guessed; player does not lose a chance.

The game ends with player victory if the correct number is guessed. The game ends with player defeat if the player runs out of chances. The game ends if the player enters ‘q’ (quit) without completing the game. When the game ends, the secret number is revealed, and the player can choose to have another round.

I have tried debugging the code but it keeps on giving segmentation errors.Can anyone help me fix it

  • I don't know asm. This probably isn't the best place to ask for help, notice there have only been 33 questions tagged assembly here in over 10 years. You'd be better off asking on our parent site Stack Overflow (43K+ assembly questions).

  • ...However, what I do know is currently this reads a bit like you are asking someone to do homework for you, which is usually not well received. Rather than throwing the whole thing up, you should break it into pieces to narrow down the points where it segfaults (or just use a debugger to find them) so you can ask more precise and specific questions.
