Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 47

Tell us what’s happening:

Hello, it sounds like an easy step but I’m stuck here and don’t know how to properly call my function. Help would be much appreciated

Your code so far


/* User Editable Region */

text = 'Hello Zaira'
shift = 3

def caesar():
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

    for char in text.lower():
        if char == ' ':
            encrypted_text += char
        else:
            index = alphabet.find(char)
            new_index = (index + shift) % len(alphabet)
            encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]


print('plain text:', text)
print('encrypted text:', encrypted_text)
caesar()

/* User Editable Region */

Hello! @cazondaie

Take a note on the indentation of Step: 46. Check whether you have indented the in-built functions before calling the caesar() function.

Hope this helps! Happy coding :slight_smile:
