      hello, lotto logix ,Lottery would c ++ dlls to build to excel as if interface had already done test and proven operation ??
       

      commercially would be something good bases like c ++ or java that is at the top currently in mobile use!

        Are you building for a pc or phone? Really the first step in writing a program without looking at any kind of code is defining or making an outline of exactly what you want the computer to do for you. Get out paper and pencil. Start with a single word or sentence. What is this program going to do on the simplest level of description. Most likely "Lottery". Now for the next part will you be focusing on a single lottery like pick 3 alone? or will it be all lotteries or even just a couple like mega million and powerball? Whatever it is write it down. I recommend outline/list for at first then maybe move to flow charting when you are ready to define the nitty gritty of how you want the program to work. Atleast for now you can fill out your ideas without having to know how to actually program. Then the ideas will change as you read the books/follow examples  and learn what the computer can and cannot do. Just my thoughts thou. Also try to check these books out from your local library. Code Complete by Steve McConnell, Clean Code by Robert Martin, Don't make me think by Steve Krug, The Mythical Man Month by Fredrick Brooks to name a few. Hope this helps.

          I was on the main, median, mode kick for a bit and actually finished some code with it. I just couldn't find a good way to use it. 

          http://thelotterymanual.com/Games/Sums?gameId=1

          That's a link the the FL page for Sums (my proof of concept for median). If you click on the column under Mode %, it will break down that Sum's median, times hit, and last hit date. Seemed like a good idea but didn't have a good way to test it beyond the daily grind of keeping track of what happened vs. the data...

            Forget ASSEMBLY; it is not for someone who wants to begin programming. I began coding on ASSEMBLY 30 + years ago on an Acorn Electron and I still do along with C, PASCAL and other 'languages'.

            Check out Python; in your case, it would be probably one of the best alternatives.

              hello lotto logix the BJECTIVE is to create for both PC and phone
                explain = create a good data statistics program
                projections etc .. in a good computer server type
              and also to the phone, so when I go there casino, or similar, I communicate by phone by remote within my computer because it has better processing
              and gaming site can access the planilias, the projections statistics of my pc at home. the Internet, and the cloud
              Google. because the server PC at home have more processing power than the phone,
                posivel is to create an algorithm or code for this?

                      Quick Web/Console solution(easy learning curve): PHP and web technologies like JS,HTML,CSS,DHTML should get you started with quick standalone tools; Then by extending further you can bring Web 2.0 pages using AngularJS or similar frameworks. PHP also has good server side frameworks. Install LAMPP or WAMPP and you are all set to start programming  - readily available stacks.

                      Java/J2EE: you can achieve same and more. Learning curve is bit spiky - need to understand a lot. Might take some time to catch basics and learn advanced tools. Once in, you can start writing your own libraries. If you use Maven(project management), you can use all existing libraries with ease. This is my current environment. Eclipse IDE with Core Java programs that can print methods outputs and show when a method predicted correctly. I am not sure whether there are any ready made stacks - by installing Tomcat server and a JDK with your preferred IDE, you should be all set to start programming.

                      In either case, the advantage is that, if you abstract the library part, then you can work on the GUI part separately.

                      If you have PHP or Perl knowledge you can start coding in Python.

                       

                      PHP,Python, Java would be my choice of language. Then you need to plugin version control, IDE, libraries etc., based on the framework and language you use. Idea IDEs(IntelliJ for Java/J2EE, Webstorm for web projects,etc., ) are all good but they are paid software. The equivalent open source alternative is Eclipse IDE.

                       

                      Good Luck

                          Tomcat webcontainer on a laptop is a bit too much. Wamp ... .

                          I would suggest html with javascript. It is lightweight and at no costs. The layout is the best that you can get. No compiling needed! No headaches with updates or version changes. Less or no problems with types and casting. Works on any computer or similar device. Can be uploaded to a server! There are free servers with free subdomainnames out there doing it! I'm waiting to see your online projects!

                              Did anybody try a pseudo-random program using an arduino IDE? (Use your last drawing digits as seed).
