An Enigma machine simulator with state and encoding display.

Currently support is only provided for those machine models in most widespread general use during the war years: the I, M3, and M4.

This is adapted, as an exercise in learning Haskell, from an earlier learning project written in Mathematica. It is my first Haskell program. A Python version with substantially the same API and command line interface, is also available.

Functionality: package API

Perform message encoding:

>>> enigmaEncoding (configEnigma "b-γ-V-VIII-II" "LFAP" "UX.MO.KZ.AY.EF.PL" "03.17.04.11") "KRIEG"
"GOWNW"

>>> let cfg = configEnigma "c-β-V-VI-VIII" "CDTJ" "AE.BF.CM.DQ.HU.JN.LX.PR.SZ.VW" "05.16.05.12"
>>> putStr $ showEnigmaEncoding cfg "FOLGENDES IST SOFORT BEKANNTZUGEBEN"

Show configuration details:

>>> let cfg = configEnigma "b-γ-V-VIII-II" "LFAQ" "UX.MO.KZ.AY.EF.PL" "03.17.04.11"
>>> putStr $ displayEnigmaConfig cfg 'K' displayOpts{format="internal"}

Functionality: command line

A command line executable, enigma (accessible if installed on the path or through stack exec -- enigma) for local Haskell installations, provides almost all the functionality of the API.

Encode messages:

$ enigma encode "B-I-III-I EMO UX.MO.AY 13.04.11" "TESTINGXTESTINGUD"
OZQK PFLP YZRP YTFV U

$ enigma encode "B-I-III-I EMO UX.MO.AY 13.04.11" "OZQKPFLPYZRPYTFVU"
TEST INGX TEST INGU D

Show configuration details (explained in more detail in the command line help):

$ enigma show "B-I-III-I EMO UX.MO.AY 13.04.11" -l 'X' -H'()' -f internal

Watch the machine as it runs for 500 steps:

$ enigma run "c-β-VIII-VII-VI QMLI UX.MO.AY 01.13.04.11" -s 500 -t -f internal -o

Limitations

Note that the correct display of some characters used to represent components (thin Naval rotors) assumes support for Unicode, while some aspects of the display of machine state depend on support for combining Unicode. This is a known limitation that will be addressed in a future release.

Compatability

Versions of this package have been part of Stackage LTS Haskell since LTS 7.24, and the current version will work with LTS since 3.2.2. For information on which GHC versions are supported by each release, see the package's Hackage Matrix.

Documentation

Full documentation — for the latest release version — is available on Hackage. Documentation for the current Stackage LTS version — generally identical to the latest release version — is avalable on Stackage.

Alternatives

For other Haskell Enigma machines see:

This package served as the basis for a Python version, with essentially the same API, though more active maintenance of this verson has resulted in some minor divergence.

Development status

Build Status

I'm currently learning and experimenting with some Haskell language features and can't promise the development version will work. More detail about planned releases and activities can be found the list of scheduled milestones and in the list of open issues. Some recent activity includes:
