     caesar — decrypt caesar cyphers

     caesar [rotation]

     The caesar utility attempts to decrypt caesar cyphers using English let‐
     ter frequency statistics.	Caesar reads from the standard input and
     writes to the standard output.

     The optional numerical argument Ar rotation may be used to specify a spe‐
     cific rotation value.

     The frequency (from most common to least) of English letters is as fol‐


     Their frequencies as a percentage are as follows:

	   E(13),  T(10.5),  A(8.1),  O(7.9),  N(7.1), R(6.8), I(6.3), S(6.1),
	   H(5.2), D(3.8),  L(3.4),  F(2.9),  C(2.7),  M(2.5),	U(2.4),	 G(2),
	   P(1.9),  Y(1.9),  W(1.5),  B(1.4),  V(.9),  K(.4),  X(.15), J(.13),
	   Q(.11), Z(.07).

     Rotated postings to USENET and some of the databases used by the
     fortune(6) program are rotated by 13 characters.
