BJP4 Self-Check 4.14: playingCard

Language/Type: Java if/else input redundancy Scanner
Author: Marty Stepp (on 2016/09/08)

Write a piece of code that reads a shorthand text description of a playing card and prints the longhand equivalent. The shorthand description is the card's rank (2 through 10, J, Q, K, or A) followed by its suit (C, D, H, or S). You should expand the shorthand into the form "Rank of Suit". You may assume that the user types valid input.

Here are two sample executions:

Enter a card: 9 S
Nine of Spades
Enter a card: K C
King of Clubs

(Because there are so many rank/suit combinations, you will need several if/else branches. But if you have 52 branches, one for each unique card, that is too many!)
