Hi, I am a beginner trying to write a Ruby program that mimics the song - '99 bottles of beer on the wall'. I want the program to ask 'how many bottles...' on the wall, subract 1 from that number, and then ask the question again until it gets down to 1 bottle of beer on the wall. So far can only get the program to subtract the number once and then the program stops. Any hints, suggestions, or reccomendations to a page/chapter in the 'Programming Ruby 1.8' book would be greatly appreciated. Here is the Ruby code I put together so far: question = 'how many bottles of beer on the wall?' puts question x = gets.chomp y = x .to_i - '1' .to_i response = y .to_s + ' bottles of beer on the wall' if y != 1 puts response puts question end Thanks for your time, Calvin
