Ok all you programmers out there I have a question what is the easiest programming that is used for lottery numbers? Or exactly I want to program a system that can pick lottery numbers from a range of say 1-35, or 1-39, or 1-49 etc. Then break that down into sections of say 1-13, or 25-35 etc. Then be able to tell it how many I want from each section as I want 1 from 1-13, then I want 2 from 25-35 and so forth. Then yes I know not asking for much huh lol, I would like to be able to tell it to pick like odd or even or both odd or both even stuff like that or maybe ya'll know of a program that can do that for free? But I was interested in doing some of my own programming (which I have never done) and just needed to know what computer language would be the best or easier one to study up on? Well any replys are welcome and thanks in advance.........HAPPY PROGRAMMING

I use Liberty BASIC <search term< and Just BASIC which is the free and simplified version.

Do you have a copy of Excel?  If so, then VBA might be your best choice for a programming language.

If not, then learn BASIC.  Liberty basic would be a good choice.

I've done something similar using GWBasic which is an old DOS language that runs in the command window of Windows or using the command prompt.  I assign letters to the combinations and letters to the combination definitions and compare these strings to eliminate the ones that are not within the acceptable parameters.  With knowledge of how to create a string from  the combination, you can make a string of E's and O's for the even/odd evaluation also.

If you understand the language you're using then you have many options.  I've tried doing the same thing with other Basic but I haven't learned them as well as I understand GWBasic so I usually just stay with the language I know best.

Liberty Basic has a trial version available I think?  Also Microsoft Gives away an express edition of their Visual Basic to help you start learning

Just do a Google for tutorials on whichever language you decide  like

and the world of programming is yours.  Probably going to need a High Speed connection to download either or use a download manager.

No their two entirely differently programming languages.  Visual Basic is the simpler of the two and in my opinion C++ the most powerful. But Visual Basic can be used to build just about any application you can think of.  If your new at the programming concept Visual Basic is a good place to get started.  Just grab one of the two and stick with it - till you get the jest of it  and then go from there.  I tried to learn both at once and wound up totally confused and finally gave up.  Visual Basic or for that matter any Basic language is all you need and is really a good place to decide if programmings for you.

Dunno if they can use the same compiler but the syntax (language) is different and as I said my opinion is Basic the simpler of the two.  Perhaps if  C++ is where you started might  be thats where you should stay. There is also a Visual C++ Express edition available - another freebie and it should be linked from the original page I gave you for Visual Basic.

Visual C++ Express Edition Here:  http://www.microsoft.com/express/vc/Default.aspx

First, I would need to know what common parameters ( or traits )you want these five numbers to possess.

Second, do you have a copy of Excel?

If you go to my blog and read "VBA Lesson 1" I show you how to write a simple, straightforward, VBA Excel program to generate every possible number set possible in a 5/39 game.  I say simple because I am very simple minded (and my wife will agree).

Soon we will be parsing all these number sets to record only those that fit a certain pattern, like binary.

Good luck.
