Anyone play (or have played) Cribbage? I remember many decades ago (between 3 and 6 Smile | :) ) learning and playing with my grandfather for hours. Played during high school, college and several workplaces when it was slow.
Relevancy is that I was cleaning up some old HDDs and found a cribbage hand generator and scoring application I had written some years ago. I was curious as to whether my anecdotal evidence of the average value of a cribbage hand was matched by a statistical analysis of many thousands of generated hands.

At that time when I wanted to learn a new language, I would see how hard it was to write a hand evaluator for scoring. I seem to remember doing it in FORTRAN, Q-Basic, VB 6.0, Forth, MUMPS, C, C++, PL/1 and a couple of others.

I guess it is time to write another one, in a 'modern' language, just for grins and giggles.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects! - Lazarus Long
