LibreBlackjack is a blackjack engine that emulates a dealer, deals cards and understands commands such as hit or stand. The basic idea is that one or more players can talk to LibreBlackjack either in an interactive or automated way through a number of standard IPC procedures. These players can be actual human players playing in real-time through a front-end (a GUI application, a web-based interface, a mobile app, etc.) or robots that implement a certain betting and playing strategy playing (i.e. card counting) as fast as possible to study and analyze game statistics. There is an internal player that reads the strategy from a text file and plays accordingly. It can also be used to play interactive ASCII blackjack.
