Just a small point, but encryption and ciphers are two different things. A cipher consists of nothing more than a character (or byte) map from one alphabet to another.

Beyond that, nice work!

I'll note that! I'm not an english native. In french, the word "crypting" doesn't really have the purpose of transforming a text to a ciphertext, there's a website dedicated to this word because of bad uses.

Thanks you for tell me that, I'll not make this error anymore!
