Hello everybody, I need your help due to a problem with the AUGMENT command: I am making a blackjack and I'm trying to create a working deck, so that when a card is extracted it can't extracted again.
This is the code:

52→dim(L₆
Fill(0,L₆

seq(X,X,0,51)→L₆
Disp L₆

5→C

51→dim(L₆
Fill(0,L₆

For(A,0,dim(L₆),1)
If A=C
Then
Wait 2
Else
Disp A
augment(L₆,{A})→L₆
SortA(L₆
Disp L₆
End
End
Disp L₆

The Disp that I've put are going to me removed it's just for me to check if the counter is going. The problem is that after the list is created and than filled with zero (the second fill), when I run the for loop it doesn't work. It should create a new list containing the previous list value exept the extracted one. Though that doesn't happen and it just stay filled with zeros.
If you know why your help would be grateful.
Thank you for your attention
If you just want to put the numbers 0..51 in a random order with no duplicates (& assuming TI's built-in random number generator is good enough for your purposes), you should be able to replace all your code with this:
Code:
randIntNoRep(0,51)→L₆

Then to deal from it, you can use consecutive entries from the list & keep track of how many cards you have dealt to use as the list index.
Here's the demo I promised you SGTMM:

Code:
randIntNoRep(1,52->L6
For(I,0,51
Disp L6(1)
If dim(L6)>1
DeltaList(cumSum(L6))->L6
End
Hi Zeroko and Firepup, as you’ve given me help, do you want me to feature you in the project?

What about this…
Code:
randIntNoRep(1,52->L6
For(I,52,1,~1
Disp L6(I
dim(L6
Ans-(1<Ans->dim(L6
End
Or even use the loop variable if it will only repeat this specific number of times…
Code:
randIntNoRep(1,52->L6
For(I,52,1,~1
I->dim(L6
Disp L6(I
End
Or just don't touch the dimension at all…
Code:
randIntNoRep(1,52->C
For(I,1,52
Disp |LC(I
End

Alright let's answer these one by one.
Also first and foremost: It was a demo, it wasn't ment to be optimised.

I feel like I understand what mine's doing better than this, but it's probably up to personal preference.

So, you're shortening the list here, and then displaying an element out of the shortened list? To me this looks like it wouldn't work, but I'll test and see later.

Back to what SGTMM asked for:

SGTMM asked for elements to be removed, so that's why.
Ok, next order of business:
