Atbash is an ancient type of cryptography that was originally used to encode the Hebrew language by transposing certain letters.
In modern computer programming, atbash and other ciphers are often used for training purposes. New coders may receive an assignment that involves creating an atbash cipher writing program. This challenge helps programmers to consider how a computer can produce this kind of result through careful loop coding with determined variables that will represent the original and final letters.
