Frank has been working IT his whole life. Each day he responds to tickets, organizes equipment, and reports to his boss. One day, near the closing time on friday, Frank is doing his final inventory and sorting come cables in the supply closet. Suddenly, the door closes and locks from the outside! Such audacity! Frank shakes the door to try and let anyone know that he's stuck in the closet. Blast, nobody comes to his aid. With no cellphone, and no internet connection, Frank settles in with his laptop. After countless games of solitaire, frank decides to make his own card game....
In this case, you are frank (but not really). Your challenge is to create a dealer that can deal hands of cards, that could be dealt realistically. Your program needs to do 2 things: deal hands of cards according to an input, and take all the hands and reshuffle them. You must do this in the least ammount of bytes possible.
Possible cards include all classic numbers and faces (a,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,j,q,k) and all suits (c,s,h,d), and two jokers (0j).
If a card is dealt, it cannot be dealt again until the program is given the reshuffle command, or it runs out of cards.
valid inputs are 'd' to deal a hand of 6 cards, and 'r' to reshuffle. NOTE that you can only deal out 9 hands before you run out of cards. Your program can either:
Or give a 'X' to indicate that the dealer is out of cards.
your program needs to be able to take multiple commands over its running span.
All possible hands need to be able to be dealt in every order. Though, your program does NOT have to be random.
We deal twice, the first hand yields the 2 of hearts, a 4 of spades, 9 of clubs, a joker, an ace of spades, and a 6 of diamonds. The second hand yields the 3 of hearts, the 10 of diamonds, the 10 of clubs, the king of clubs, the ace of diamonds, and the queen of spades. this is VALID because this is possible in real life.
We deal twice, the first hand yields a mass of 5 cards (indicated by the dashes) and a 6 of hearts. The second hand deals another mass of 5 cards (again, the dashes) and another 6 of hearts. This is INVALID because it cannot happen in real life.
we deal once, reset, and deal again. some of the cards from the first and the second deal match. this is VALID because cardstacks are renewed when shuffled.
As with any golf, the lowest byte count wins! Good luck!
