Tool to decrypt/encrypt with rot13. ROT-13 cipher is a particular case of the Caesar cipher, where the shift is equal to 13, this allow the cipher to be reciprocal.

Example: DCODE is crypted QPBQR with ROT-13
This is a special case of the Caesar cipher (and more generally shift ciphers)
Rot-13 decryption is identical to encryption, due to the reciprocal substituting alphabet used:
Example: URYYB becomes HELLO.
Rot-13 has the same function for encryption and decryption, it is said to be involutive.
Frequency analysis shows a shift of 13 letters (The E is replaced by an R, which should be the most present letter).
A message encoded by Rot13 has an index of coincidence similar to the language of the plain text.
The ROT13 code has been widely popularized on usenet groups and discussion forums, for example as a method of spoil.
An offset of 13 allows the encryption to be reversible. The encryption and decryption method are identical. Applying 2 consecutive encryptions (2 shifts of 13) heads to find the original text.
