craps_simulation, an Octave code which simulates the gambling game of craps, in which a player rolls two dice. On the first roll, the player wins immediately if a 7 or 11 is rolled, and loses immediately if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. Otherwise, the sum of the dice on this first roll is called the point. The player now continues to roll the dice, winning if the point is rolled again, and losing if a 7 is rolled.

craps_simulation is available in a MATLAB version and an Octave version and a Pythonn.
octave_simulation, an Octave code which uses simulation to study card games, contests, and other processes which have a random element. Usually, the purpose is to try to predict the average behavior of the system over many trials.
