right now it only does episode "1" , i would be grateful if you can even write a description for one episode because thats one less i have to write for       smile ( of course i will give credit to you in the text for writing it)
here it is currently  or if someone can give me a list of descriptions i can leagally copy that would be greathttp://www.users.bigpond.net.au/kingpomba/Futurama.exe
 Edit: done the entire first production season now... if no one shows support for it ill just stop making it.

 Seems a bit strange to write it as a console program, instead of as html. Just witing this as a programming exercise, I assume?

You need to error-check your input, if it fails to read a number you need to clear the input device before you try to read again. If you enter text, it goes into an infinite loop right now.
(sorry, old habit. Spend a year teaching C++ and you start trying to break every program you come across, especially console apps  smile )

Partly as a exercise, i don't get to take any programming classes till next year and being the nerd i am i thought id get a jump on it.... Also there are a lot of htlm episode guides out there plus id thought it would be easier to have it in one place , all you need to do is input the number and you have it.
How many futurama episode are there in total anyway, just curious cause i need to number to put in the devils hand summary.

Devils Hands is 72nd out of 72. It depends if you are listing them in the production order or the order in which they aired  America. Devils Hands is last in both but some episodes can variey quite a bit.

not sure, but you can always refer to one of the html guides we're talking about. I suggest the transcripts section at The Neutral Planet It's got two complete lists, one for the ep guide and one for the transcripts.

... wow, 72? is it really so few? I guess I shouldn't be surprised. It annoys me that my incomplete simpsons dvd collection is so much smaller than my complete futurama dvd collection.  wink

Wow, that's a neat idea! It only seems to go up to 6 though, and when I typed in the full production code it went insane.   smile

yeah it's a work in progress the next time i upload it should have around 15 eps i plan to do all 72.
also im not sure if i can code it to accept letters and numbers and check them and produce a statement so i chose numbers.
The loop function which keeps the program going for more than one time when you input something wrong causes it to loop the error.

Are you writing in C or C++? if so I can help you out, doing properly error-proof input can be tricky.
