ROT13 C++

The following program (written in C++) creates a filter program for converting ascii into ROT13 encoding. A very simple cypher where each character in the alphabet is replaced with the 13th letter from its position. To download a compiled windows compatible binary, click here.

#include <cstring>
#include <cstdio>
#include <cctype>

using namespace std;

char translate(char c)
    int cflag = 0;
    char oc = c;
    char alphabet[] = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz";
    int alphalen = strlen(alphabet);
    if(isalpha(c)) {
        if(isupper(c)) {
            cflag = 1;
            c = tolower(c);
        for(int i=0;i<alphalen; ++i) {
            if(c==alphabet[i]) {
                oc = alphabet[(i+13)%alphalen];
        if(cflag==1) {
            oc = toupper(oc);
    return oc;

int main() {
    char c;
    while((c=(char)getchar())!=EOF) {
    return 0;

  3. Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

  4. A ton of spam that I never noticed until recently, guess I was under their radar for awhile but not anymore. So now increased posting security is going on.
