Prog Language for Texas Hold Em SoftwareLocked
Several years ago, I did a lot of Microsoft Access with VBA programming in my job. I had just gotten started with VB and Java, when I was promoted to another area. Long story short, I haven’t done much with it in years. However, I love programming, and I want to develop my own Texas Hold ‘Em Odds Calculator and Hand History Software (like the ones easily downloaded online today that go with Party Poker, Full Tilt, etc.). I was just wondering if anyone out there knew what language would be best to use to program the software?
Keypoints would be to read the standardized table layout and read cards shown, money bet, # of players. Also, some sites would have the capability to feed the software with a text file of all actions. However, position, would have to be obtained through my software reading the position on the graphic on the poker site’s screen.
Keep in mind I have only a basic knowledge of programming, and plan to buy books for the language(s) recommended. So the simpler to learn, the better.
Thanks so much for any advice you can offer!
