    Default Hangman Program for CP1

    Okay, so I'm in high school and taking a mandatory Computer Programming class. I have to create a hangman program that the user can play over and over again using different words. However, whenever the user plays again, it just uses the same word from before. Can anyone help me?

    import java.util.*;
    import java.io.*;
    import java.net.*;

    public class Hangman
    {
    public static String getRandomWord()
    {
    try
    {
    URL page = new URL("http://projecteuler.net/project/words.txt");
    BufferedReader br= new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(page.openStream()));
    String pageSource=br.readLine();
    pageSource=pageSource.replace("\"","");
    String[] words=pageSource.split(",");
    int randNum=(int)(Math.random()*words.length);
    String word=words[randNum];
    word=word.toLowerCase();
    return word;
    }
    catch(Exception e)
    {
    return "hippopotamus";
    }
    }

    public static String Masquerade(String Word, String UsedLetters)
    {
    String NewWord= "";
    for (int i=0;i<Word.length();i++)
    {
    String letter = Word.substring(i,i+1);
    if (UsedLetters.contains(letter))
    {
    NewWord+=letter;
    }
    else
    {
    NewWord = NewWord+" _ ";
    }
    }
    NewWord=NewWord.replace(" ", " ");
    NewWord=NewWord.trim();
    return NewWord;
    }

    Default Re: Hangman Program for CP1

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    it just uses the same word from before.
    Where does it get the word from? How can it get a different word next time the game is played?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
