could i get help in getting this program to work. there are two errors. thanks

public class GuessingGame {

public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Let's play a game. I'll pick a number between");
System.out.println("1 and 100, and you try to guess it.");
boolean playAgain;
do {
playGame(); // call subroutine to play one game
System.out.println("Would you like to play again? ");
playAgain = getlnBoolean();
} while (playAgain);
System.out.println("Thanks for playing. Goodbye.");
} // end of main()

static void playGame() {
int computerNumber; // A random number picked by the computer.
int usersGuess; // A number entered by user as a guess.
int guessCount; // Number of guesses the user has made.
computerNumber = (int)(100 * Math.random()) + 1;
// The value assigned to computerNumber is randomly
// chosen integer between 1 and 100, inclusive.
guessCount = 0;
System.out.println("What is your first guess?");
while (true) {
usersGuess = getInt(); // get the user's guess
if (usersGuess == computerNumber) {
System.out.println ("You got it in" + guessCount
+ " guesses! My number was " + computerNumber);
break; // the game is over; the user has won
if (guessCount == 6) {
System.out.println("You didn't get the number in 6 guesses.");
System.out.println("You lose. My number was " + computerNumber);
break; // the game is over the user has lost
// If we get to this point, the game continues.
// Tell the user if the guess was too high or too low.
if (usersGuess < computerNumber)
System.out.println("That's too low. Try again: ");
else if (usersGuess > computerNumber)
System.out.println("That's too high. Try again: ");
System.out.println ();
} // end of playGame ()

} // end of class GuessingGame

Well I guess you have posted this question in the wrong forum, and it is so hard to read the code like this, please use the UBB Code when you are pasting the java code. Further more, please do tell us what are the errors, it is much easier for us then to answer. Regards.

Moving this to the Java In General (Beginner) forum.

Please try to post your questions n the most appropriate forum. Since this forum is about J2ME and you have code that has public static void main. Means that it is not a question about J2ME.

Quite simple really. You are not reading the user input. You have two methods getlnBoolean() and getInt() which are meant to read the user input but are not defined anywhere.
I agree. Here's the link:
