DescriptionEncode or decode secret messages using the ancient Caesar Cipher. This is a substitution cipher which works by shifting all letters by a fixed number of positions. Julius Caesar used a shift of 3, but you can use any shift. To decode an N-shift code, you need to shift another C-N steps, where C is the number of characters in the alphabet. For N=13, and the usual 26-letter alphabet, the Caesar cipher is the ROT13 code which has been used to hide spoilers on the Internet.
