Student records not showing data even after the prompt closes?

Hi

Could somebody check out my code please as I don't seem to be able to print student records to the screen?

The program seems to work, but I noticed some aspects of how it operates that might not be as you intended:

  • the search is case-sensitive, so the name must match exactly including capitalization
  • the "print" overwrites the output, so only the last matched student will be shown after "quit"
  • no error message is provided if a search is not found

All of these can be corrected with additional code, but it operates as-is if you observe these restrictions.
