    Class Question - Object Orientation

    I'm just getting to grips with Object Orientation and am testing out my skills with a game of blackjack. and am a little stuck..

    I've created a class for the DECK of cards which takes note of what cards have been dealt and how many are left in the deck. I have declared and initialiised this class in my main.
    I have now created another class called CARD. This class holds info about type of card and rank of card. in the constructor of the CLASS card i would like to access a function in the already initialized DECK object. Is this possible?
    my code for the CARD constructor below..

    Code:
    card::card()
    {
        int n = pack.deal(); //pack is the object declared in main of class type DECK. 
                                   //deal is a function which of class DECK and returns int.
    }

    If you hadn't already made a card class by this time, you've already messed it up. It would seem extremely natural for a deck to contain a bunch of cards, so you need to know what a card is first.
