Iam writing a script for my sisters friends little brother

i want the program to say hello lets say his name is Joe and ask him how he is and he can write a reply back saying fine and then it replys "Iam happy you are (his response) today
and then it goes into a basic math where he can put in a number hit enter put in another number and then it tells him the awnser.

Is there an exact question in there?

Are you asking for the entire answer?

What have you done so far?

Ok - I don't know C, but i know the groundwork to Perl - so here's one Perl solution:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl

print "\nHello Joe, how are you today? ";
chomp( $feelToday = <STDIN> );

print "\nI am happy you are $feelToday today.";
print "\nLet's do some math. What's your first number? ";
chomp( $firstNumber = <STDIN> );

print "\nWhat's your second number? ";
chomp( $secondNumber = <STDIN> );

$mathResult = $firstNumber + $secondNumber;
print "\nThe math result is $mathResult!\n\n";

Just put it in a script, make it executable and run it. Just make sure the first line points to the location of your Perl executable on your system!

And under the "Documentation" section, it clearly says:

Usage:
perl2exe myscript.pl
