After some discussion about this double 11 situation with my instructor, he said it was ok if the rules weren't identical to the original blackjack game because we haven't studied Case() as you have mentioned, and we probably won't get to it by terms end in may.
So as an alternative, I call 10+11=21 blackjack, which is still possible in the game, and I can make two more if statements to declare if (card1+card2==22) declare a bad deal, end the program.
My real problem is I haven't learned the methods needed yet, and although there is plenty of text out there on the subject, I have to make the game work within the confines of what we have covered in class, but I guess I've already come this far. Maybe my local store has a good book on Java that covers all the good stuff like cases and arrays. If they have examples and exercises I can learn just about anything, so fingers crossed.
Yep that's exactly what I get too, and I just found another bug which causes an infinite loop when some unknown exact criteria are met, but on a positive side, my instructor said the work so far was, far beyond what he had expected of me, I suppose technically it wasn't my code entirely, but he said as long as I understand it, it doesn't matter where it comes from. I'll go see if I can find that book, maybe there is a way to salvage this and submit a bug free program.
