    Default Keeping Track

    How would you keep track of how many times a program has ran through a loop? For example, program asks user to continue (y/n), if they enter y, program continues then asks again once finished with task (continue? (y/n)). If n, then program ends. I want to keep track of how many times the user has entered y to continue the program, so I can record how many attempts they have made and then print out the number of attempts after the user quits.

    Just create an integer variable that is incremented every time the loop is completed.
