Not sure what's going on here

The While condition:
while tempAlienStatBlocks(0,DHP) > 0 AND tempAlienStatBlocks(1,DHP) > 0
is always true for some reason. Printing these values within the loop shows they're 60 and 70 respectively. :?:


Sorry. That was completely my cockup in debugging. Despite thinking I'd checked for a case of attack strength=0 it was coming through with one anyway - as a result, each alien was having their hit points reduced by 0 each round. And so neither was winning!

Kludged with: IF attackStrength=0 THEN attackStrength=1 : END IF

And it doesn't get stuck.

Edit: better yet, check for >= in the initial check, not > only! doh!
