    Comparing players deck

    Im making a card game, im wondering how to compare the cards that the players select to play through the trump hearts array, and to make the player with the lowest array point to "win" the round.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    void main() {
       const char *cardNames[53];
       cardNames[1] = "Ace of Hearts";
       cardNames[2] = "2 of Hearts";
       cardNames[3] = "3 of Hearts";
       cardNames[4] = "4 of Hearts";
       cardNames[5] = "5 of Hearts";
       cardNames[6] = "6 of Hearts";
       cardNames[7] = "7 of Hearts";
       cardNames[8] = "8 of Hearts";
       cardNames[9] = "9 of Hearts";
       cardNames[10] = "10 of Hearts";
       cardNames[11] = "Jack of Hearts";
       cardNames[12] = "Queen of Hearts";
       cardNames[13] = "King of Hearts";
       cardNames[14] = "Ace of Diamonds";
       cardNames[15] = "2 of Diamonds";
       cardNames[16] = "3 of Diamonds";
       cardNames[17] = "4 of Diamonds";

    No idea about your problem, but two things you might want to know:
    Code:
    int main() { // main returns an int, not void!
        ...
    }
    Code:
    const char *cardNames[53];
    cardNames[1] = "Ace of Hearts";
    cardNames[2] = "2 of Hearts";
    cardNames[3] = "3 of Hearts";
    
    // Can be written as:
    const char* cardNames[] = {
        "Ace of Hearts",
        "2 of Hearts",
        "3 of Hearts"
    };
