From The README:
Xblackjack is a MOTIF/OLIT based tool constructed to get you ready for the
casino.  It was inspired by a book called "Beat the Dealer" by Edward O.
Thorp, Ph.D. of UCLA.  A number of important statistics are maintained for
display, and used by the program to implement Thorp's "Complete Point System"
(high-low system).
Beginners can learn a basic strategy which doesn't require counting.  The
best strategy employs a simple card counting technique which can be used to
distinguish favorable situations.  Avid players can learn to compute Thorp's
high-low index, which takes the number of unseen cards into account.
The index is used by the program to suggest a bet, indicate when you should
buy insurance, and whether you should stand or hit, etc.  You can test the
strategy using a slider to control "autoplay mode".  Pressing the message
button below the playing area provides hints; the current count, index
and strategy table are revealed.
