The printDeck Method

Whenever you are working with arrays, it is convenient to have a method that will print the contents of the array. We have seen the pattern for traversing an array several times, so the following method should be familiar:

  public static void printDeck (Card[] deck) {
    for (int i=0; i<deck.length; i++) {
      printCard (deck[i]);

Since deck has type Card[], an element of deck has type Card. Therefore, deck[i] is a legal argument for printCard.
