Re: mod 95 vigninere cipher

i have had a look at various ways but i dont really understand how to use the %

Re: mod 95 vigninere cipher

Are you talking about the modulus operator (that's denoted by the % sign)?

Code Java:

5 % 3; // performs "5 modulo 3", returns the remainder of 5/3, or 2.

Re: mod 95 vigninere cipher

well it says mod not sure if it can be done using modulus

Re: mod 95 vigninere cipher

Normally in computer science mod is the short way of saying modulus (or modulo, depending on the conjugation), and in Java this is denoted with the % operator.

A modulo operation will naturally limit you to a range [0,x) (where x is the divisor, using set inclusion/exclusion notation).

So if you wanted a range [1, 95], you can translate this to **num % 95 + 1;**
