;;; Commentary:

;; The single entry point, `rot13-other-window', performs a Caesar cipher
;; encrypt/decrypt on the current buffer and displays the result in another 
;; window.  Rot13 encryption is sometimes used on USENET as a read-at-your-
;; own-risk wrapper for material some might consider offensive, such as
;; ethnic humor.
;; Written by Howard Gayle.
;; This hack is mainly to show off the char table stuff.

;;; Code:

(defvar rot13-display-table
  (let ((table (make-display-table))
	(i 0))
    (while (< i 26)
      (aset table (+ i ?a) (vector (+ (% (+ i 13) 26) ?a)))
      (aset table (+ i ?A) (vector (+ (% (+ i 13) 26) ?A)))
      (setq i (1+ i)))
  "Char table for rot 13 display.")

(defun rot13-other-window ()
  "Display current buffer in rot 13 in another window.
The text itself is not modified, only the way it is displayed is affected.

To terminate the rot13 display, delete that window.  As long as that window
is not deleted, any buffer displayed in it will become instantly encoded
in rot 13.

See also `toggle-rot13-mode'."
  (let ((w (display-buffer (current-buffer) t)))
    (set-window-display-table w rot13-display-table)))

(defun toggle-rot13-mode ()
  "Toggle the use of rot 13 encoding for the current window."
  (if (eq (window-display-table (selected-window)) rot13-display-table)
      (set-window-display-table (selected-window) nil)
    (if (null (window-display-table (selected-window)))
	(set-window-display-table (selected-window) rot13-display-table))))
