    heres my algorithm for randomizing numbers

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    const int HIGH = 10;
    const int LOW = 1;
    
    int main()
    {
             time_t seconds; //seconds is variable for time
             time(&seconds);
             srand((unsigned int) seconds);
             int num;
    
             num= rand() % (HIGH - LOW + 1) + LOW;
    
             cout<<num<<endl;
             return 0;
    }
    that will give you a number between 1 and 10

    Is that any better than mine Paro?

    Code:
    srand( time( NULL ) );
    cout << (rand( )% 10) + 1 << endl;

    My method for random numbers

    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <windows.h>

    int main()
    {
    int randnum;

    srand(GetTickCount());
    randnum = rand()%101;

    }

    -From gamtutorials , it works good. Just make sure you call srand before rand()

    I think they work exactly the same, its just the way i did it is like using C instead of C++, its just older...

    actually maybe theres a better way of putting it... its like im re-inventing it each time instead of doing it the short and easy way...

    its the way i learned it and its the way i know it, so thats how i use it

    Gah!

    I looked away for two days and now my reply seems vaguely rememberable. Heh, oh well. Reply to the strength of Paro's coding class.

    I'm ahead of my class, we know basic single-dimension arrays and functions as voids/ints/char kind of things. I'm actually ahead of the classing with using structs/member functions in c/c++. Now I'm preparing to use two dimensional arrays. Teacher seems proud of me. He has me participating in this Great Computer Challenge. Any of you in the VA area going to be there?

    Code:
    template <class T>
    T random(T min, T max)
    {
        srand ( unsigned (time(NULL)) );
        return T (rand() % (max - min + 1)) + min;
    }
    That's what I use for randomitivity.

    i havent gotten into templates yet, right now were learning the basics of Classes, and then the arrays...which goes to 2d arrays i think...

    i pretty much know how to use arrays in a limited way like:

    int j[10];

    which is much better than:

    int j1, j2, j3, j4, j5, j6, j7, j8, j9, j10;

    heheheh

    Paro, the tough part is making a true deck, with 1 of every card in each suit. Try it, there's plenty of ways to do it.
