C Recap Workshop

A quick review of basic C concepts. See here for solutions and the decoded message.

Caesar cipher

Today we'll be implementing a very simple Caesar cipher in caesar.c. A Caesar cipher is a simple encryption technique. See here for how it works.

A few notes:

  • The encoded message and your alphabet are included in caesar.c
  • Print every possible shift/rotation--since there are 26 letters in your alphabet, there will be 26 possible shifts
  • One of these shifts will be readable--if so, you're done!
