Answers to Questions

How to encrypt using Chinese Code cipher?

Encryption with chinese code uses the positions (ranks) of vowels and consonants in the alphabet.

In the original chinese code cipher, the horizontal bars represent the vowels : A (1 bar), E (2 bars), I (3 bars), O (4 bars), U (5 bars), Y (6 bars) and vertical bars represent the number of consonants that follow the vowel in the alphabet.

Example: To code C, which is the 2nd consonant following the vowel A, use 1 horizontal bar (A is the first vowel) and 2 vertical bars.

Example: To code L, which is the 3rd consonant following the vowel I, use 3 horizontal bars (I is the 3rd vowel) and 3 vertical bars.

Example: DCODE is written char(68)char(67)char(79)char(68)char(69)

The full original alphabet used is: code-chinois

There exists a variation which inverts the vertical and horizontal bars (also called the Samurai alphabet) code-samurai

How to decrypt Chinese Code cipher?
