    Simple Blackjack Program

    I recently took an intro to c programming class and faced a large number of problems when coding my final project. To ease the pain for anyone going through the same experience, this is the my final project.

    Code:
    // Programmer: Vladislav Shulman
    // Final Project
    // Blackjack
    
    // Feel free to use any and all parts of this program and claim it as your own work
    
    //FINAL DRAFT
    
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <math.h>
    #include <time.h>                //Used for srand((unsigned) time(NULL)) command
    #include <process.h>             //Used for system("cls") command
    
    #define spade 06                 //Used to print spade symbol
    #define club 05                  //Used to print club symbol
    #define diamond 04               //Used to print diamond symbol
    #define heart 03                 //Used to print heart symbol
    #define RESULTS "Blackjack.txt"  //File name is Blackjack
    
    //Global Variables
    int k;
    int l;
    int d;
    int won;
    int loss;
    int cash = 500;
    int bet;
    int random_card;
    int player_total=0;
    int dealer_total;
    
    //Function Prototypes
    int clubcard();      //Displays Club Card Image
    int diamondcard();   //Displays Diamond Card Image
    int heartcard();     //Displays Heart Card Image
    int spadecard();     //Displays Spade Card Image
    int randcard();      //Generates random card
    int betting();       //Asks user amount to bet
    void asktitle();     //Asks user to continue
    void rules();        //Prints "Rules of Vlad's Blackjack" menu
    void play();         //Plays game
    void dealer();       //Function to play for dealer AI
    void stay();         //Function for when user selects 'Stay'
    void cash_test();    //Test for if user has cash remaining in purse
    void askover();      //Asks if user wants to continue playing
    void fileresults();  //Prints results into Blackjack.txt file in program directory
    
    //Main Function
    int main(void)

    Let's hope your teacher doesn't know how to play blackjack!

    You're initially dealt 2 cards, before you hit or stay, not one. If you go over 21, and the dealer goes over 21, you do not win. Only the player with the highest hand, but still under 21, can win when the dealer goes bust.

    I like your program because you went to the effort to include some graphic of the cards, etc., even though it's text based - nice touch there. Also, your code is logically laid out in functions, so it's easy to read and add or subtract things in the future. It's obvious you put a lot of effort into this program.

    Your indentation is not always consistent, but you consistently use some form of similar indentation, so your code is very easy to read through.
