I am creating a hangman script and I need help:
I need to ask player 1 to enter a word and after the word is entered I need the word to be converted to underscores depending on how many letters there are.
For example if player 1 entered: Apple
Then the command window would:
clear
clc
_ _ _ _ _
Then Player 2 would have to guess the letters/word

which interpreter are you using? if you want to display an underscore eg with latex interpreter use '\_' instead of '_' .
