Learn C Programming

By: Jeff Szuhay

Overview of this book

C is a powerful general-purpose programming language that is excellent for beginners to learn. This book will introduce you to computer programming and software development using C. If you're an experienced developer, this book will help you to become familiar with the C programming language. This C programming book takes you through basic programming concepts and shows you how to implement them in C. Throughout the book, you'll create and run programs that make use of one or more C concepts, such as program structure with functions, data types, and conditional statements. You'll also see how to use looping and iteration, arrays, pointers, and strings. As you make progress, you'll cover code documentation, testing and validation methods, basic input/output, and how to write complete programs in C. By the end of the book, you'll have developed basic programming skills in C, that you can apply to other programming languages and will develop a solid foundation for you to advance as a programmer.

Finishing the dealer.c program

Having extracted Card, Hand, and Deck declarations and functions, we can now finish the program. Take the following steps:

  1. Create and open the dealer.h header file and add the following new lines:
#include <stdbool.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>

#include "card.h"
#include "hand.h"
#include "deck.h"

Looking again through carddeck.c, we see that all that is left to be transferred to dealer.h are the standard library header files. We also created three header files for each of the three .c source files; we add them to this header file. Recall that we also included this header file in each of the three source files. Also, remember that we added #ifndef … #endif exclusion directives around each of those header files so that they will ever only be preprocessed once. This header file contains all of the...
