in thread Generating all 5-card hands

merlyn,
For generating all combinations of 52 cards taken 5 at a time....But are you really ready to process all 2598960 iterations? At 100 per second, that's still about a third of a day.

In cribbage, order is important contrary to what thor said earlier. The position of 1 card determines its eligibility for "right-jack" so there really are 12,994,800 hands that need to be considered. Even still, it is possible to both generate and score all those hands in under 15 minutes using pure perl. This would encompass everything thor wanted to do and a lot more.

Cheers - L~R

While you're correct in that order matters, you and I are not disagreeing. My original problem was to prove that all hands that contained a 5 had at least two points. If knobs is obtained, then a jack was cut. With at least one 5 in the hand, this will yield 2 points for the fifteen, thus satisfying the original problem.
