For the third suggested practice program (a choose your own adventure game) how do I get the console to accept input from the player? (i.e. Console.Readline())

In previous lessons there was a reference to a “regular console” that requires “dotnet run” to run the program. How do I get one of those so I can have the player put stuff in?


Hello, @data1382960316, and welcome to the forums.

You could google C# IDE’s, and find several options, but for a sandbox type environment where you can practice things you’re learning, repl.it works quite well.

I need help with this: Loops through a piece of text and only prints words that start with the letter “a” to the console to create a poem.

Hello, @elab234. What have you got so far? I would start by writing a short poem using only words that start with “a”, and then sprinkle those words into a string in the order they appear in the poem. Use a loop to iterate through each word in the string, and print only the words that start with “a”. The resulting printed output would be the poem I had written.
