A relatively simple obfuscation for a relatively simple substitution cipher. This either takes a file as a parameter to encrypt in atbash, or provided no input encrypt's it's __DATA__.

#!/usr/bin/perl open DATA,$ARGV[0]if$ARGV[0];$ ,=65;@ .=map$_,reverse chr$ ,..pack'c', +$ .;$.=$, +25;print join'',map{join'',map{$ *=ord>ord uc z?push(@%,/./)&&uc:push +(@%,0)&&$ _;$ ^=$ *=~/[chr$,-chr$.]/?$.[(ord$*)-$,]:$*;$%[$;++]?lc$^:$^}split q, +,,}<DATA> __DATA__ This is an implementation of an atbash (or 'zgyzhs') cipher, which enc +odes strings by replacing 'a' with 'z', 'b' with 'y', etc. This is my test + string. This string includes CAPital letters, spaces, punctuation, and newline +s. This tests EVERY capability of this implementation.

$,=42;for(34,0,-3,9,-11,11,-17,7,-5){$*.=pack'c'=>$,+=$_}for(reverse s +plit//=>$* ){$%++?$ %%2?push@C,$_,$":push@c,$_,$":(push@C,$_,$")&&push@c,$"}$C[$# +C]=$/;($#C >$#c)?($ c=\@C)&&($ C=\@c):($ c=\@c)&&($C=\@C);$%=$|;for(@$c){print$_^ +$$C[$%++]}
