Sorting hand of cards in poker
I am working on an assignment that involves creating a simplified poker game. I am new to C++, but this is for class, so I am here to learn. Anyways...
After I deal each players hand vector, how would I sort the vector before it prints? They are char vectors called hand1 for player 1, and hand2 for player 2. The deck vector is a char as well, but the rank array is a string (so that the number 10 prints), and the suit array is a char (so that the actual symbols print). Instead of printing: 8<heart>, 3<club>, A<spade>, 4<spade>, 9 <diamond>, 8<club>, 2<club>, it would print: 2<club>, 3<club>, 4<spade>, 8<heart>, 8<club>, 9 <diamond>, A<spade>.
I hope this was enough information. I can send my code if you'd like to look at it. No pointers, no classes. I'm not at that level yet (unless there is no other way to do what I am asking). I can improve upon this project in my next class.
