### How to encrypt according to the number of Bars in Letters cipher?

The principle of encryption is to associate to a number, a letter or group of letters comprising as many distinct lines/bars necessary for their writing/symbol.

Example: The number 3 can be linked to A or F because these letters are composed of 3 lines/bars

To encrypt a text, first associate each letter of plain text with a number (such as its rank in the alphabet with A1Z26).

Example: F is the 6th letter of the alphabet, or 6 which can be encrypted with AA

The count of bars is rather natural, but it is not universal, it works easily with letters with bars, but less well with curved letters.

Example: S is composed of a single curved line so it is associated with 1 (but some could count up to 3 lines for this letter)

### How to decrypt with number of Lines in Letters cipher?

Break down the spelling of each character or group of characters by counting the number of strokes that compose it.

Each number can be associated with a letter (like its rank in the alphabet with A1Z26)

Example: AA has 6 bars, and the 6th letter of the alphabet is F

### How to recognize a Bars Letters coded text?

The letters of the message are composed mainly or only of characters whose spelling contains straight lines, the letters I,L,T,V,X,A,F,H,K,N,Y,Z,E,M,W are the most common ones.
