For practice we had to create pseudocode. Below is my pseudocode.

PROMPT for username

               IF user types “quit”

                               Exit Program

               ELSE

               ENDIF

PROMPT for password

               IF user types “quit”

                               Exit Program

               ELSE

ENDIF

VALIDATE user input

               IF NOT Validated

                               Check number of invalid entries

                                               IF failed attempts is equal to three

                                                               DISPLAY error message

                                                               EXIT program

                                               ELSE

                                                               DECREMENT remaining attempts by one

                                                               DISPLAY remaining attempts

                                                               LOOP to VALIDATE user input

                                               ENDIF

                               ELSE

SET username

MATCH user role

DISPLAY welcome message

A class mate recommended I add a while loop that looks like this:

WHILE exit is false THEN

  GET username

  GET password

  IF password and username do NOT equal the exit flag (the user types exit or perhaps a menu option to exit) THEN

     // perform the credential authentication here…

  ELSE

    SET exit to true

  ENDIF

ENDWHILE

I didn’t the chance to ask him but I’m new to this and I’m having a hard time understanding where that would go in my current pseudocode?

Hope this makes sense!
