Can anybody help me out on creating the ceasar cipher. I am attempting to create the program with several functions, including a function for a password. I think that it adds a few more "bells and whistles" by adding this feature. When I run the script below, what is being printed is the location of memory that it is being kept in.
Although I have yet to finish writing this script, i.e. for the decoding function, I can't seem correctly encrypt the string and have yet to get that far.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
