re: Daily Challenge #42 - Caesar Cipher VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Here we go:

f=(s)=>[...Array(26)].map((_,i)=>26-i).map(n=>`key: ${26-n}\ncipher: ${s}\nplain: ${[...s].map(l=>(a=l.charCodeAt(0),String.fromCharCode(a<123&&a>96?97+((a-97+n)%26):a))).join('')}`).join`\n---\n`

Without any proper dictionary, I guess I'll stick to the "bruteforce" method! Here's how it works:

  • First, build an Array containing numbers from 26 to 1 ([...Array(26)].map((_,i)=>26-i))
  • Print the current index (26-n) and the cipher (s)
  • Build the associated original text: For each character, if its charCode is between 97 and 122 (hence, if it is a valid lowercase character), add the current index to it, else just return it.
  • Finally, print the complete result
f('dwwdfn iurp wkh zrrgv dw gdzq');
