Description

The Caesar cipher is one of the earliest known and simplest ciphers. It is a type of substitution cipher in which each letter in the plaintext is 'shifted' a certain number of places down the alphabet. For example, with a shift of 1, A would be replaced by B, B would become C, and so on. The method is named after Julius Caesar, who apparently used it to communicate with his generals.

To pass an encrypted message from one person to another, it is first necessary that both parties have the 'key' for the cipher, so that the sender may encrypt it and the receiver may decrypt it. For the Caesar cipher, the key is the number of characters to shift the cipher alphabet.

Here is a quick example of the encryption and decryption steps involved with the Caesar cipher. The text we will encrypt is 'defend the east wall of the castle, by sending 50 more soldiers there', with a shift (key) of 1.

Test your program by decrypting the text file secretMessage.txt located in the I:\kopp\outbox\CS 313 02\Program Assignments folder. The key for this file is 1. You are required to create an array that will be the cipher code. Any characters that are not part of the 26 letters of the alphabet and the 10 digits should be passed through without changing them. When you create your cipher, add the digits 0-9 to the end of the alphabet and shift for 36 total characters. When you complete the program, do the following. 1. Turn in a printout of the source code from Visual Studio with this sheet attached to the front Extra Credit 5 points: Add punctuation (. , ? ! ;) and a space as part of the characters of the available alphabet and part of the cipher.
