Card Shuffling

Posted by Matt Gerrans on December 11, 2001 at 6:19 PM

> Can any body tell me how to write a small program to shuffle and cut 52 cards in a GUI window?

Could you be more specific? Do you actually want to show the animation of the cards being shuffled? Are you looking for a simple shuffling algorithm (this was discussed a few months back, here, so try the search at the top of the forum)? Do you want it to work with any number of cards or just 52? Do you really need to cut, or just shuffle (a cut algorithm would be pretty trivial in any case)?

If this for your solitaire project, you are probably attending the same university as Hiran in Canada; he's a pretty smart guy so maybe you can get him to help you out on the project...
