# endless loop

## endless loop

(OP)
I have witten a code to check if a numbe is a cube but keep getting an endless loop when I enter a cubed number.  I can't spot my mistake.  Any help please?

int Number;
int Test;
Test = 1;
Number = ReadIntPr("Enter a whole number for testing: ");
while(Test * Test * Test <= Number)
{
if(Test * Test * Test == Number)
{
WriteInt(Number);
WriteString(" is a cube");
}
else
Test + Test + 1;
{
if(Test * Test * Test != Number)
}
WriteInt(Number);
WriteString( "is not cube)

Why not use the shortcut Test++ or ++Test?
