Announcement: New Meld Calculator
How rude of me. I suppose I should explain my meld calculating program.

Step 1: Enter a 20-card hand via the Hand Creator section.
The Meld Calculator section will update as the Hand Creator section is changed.
This is done one of three ways:
Subsection #1 - (Manual Entry) Type 'A', 'T', 'K', 'Q', or 'J' into the desired suit input fields.
Subsection #2 - (Manual Entry) Click on the desired card images.
Subsection #3 - (Automated Entry) Click the 'Generate New Random Hand' button.

Step 2: Declare the trump suit in the Trump Selector section.
This feature will adjust the meld score in the Meld Calculator section upon any change.
*Yes, I know every hand has a trump declared. The Undeclared option is to be referenced for counting meld before bidding is concluded / a trump is declared.

Step 3: Establish the scoring chart that you will use via the Scorechart Selector section.
This feature, like the Trump Selector, will adjust the meld score in the Meld Calculator section upon any change.

Some additional notes:
*The Meld Calculator will not update the meld score unless the hand is 20 cards long.

*In the Hand Creator section, regardless of the Subsection that you initially used to enter your hand, if you wish to:
Delete a card - backspace or delete the card @ Subsection #1.
Add a card - key it in @ Subsection #1 or click it @ Subsection #2.

*The Permalink in the Meld Calculator section provides a way to save the current hand in hyperlink form, in case you would like to share or discuss a particular occurrence of cards. (This feature has a couple of bugs for me to work out.)
