Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 51

Tell us what’s happening:

I keep running into the last bit:
You should call your function again, this time passing text and 13 as arguments.

This is what my code looks like below:

Your code so far

/* User Editable Region */

text = 'Hello Zaira'
shift = 3

def caesar(message, offset):
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

    for char in message.lower():
        if char == ' ':
            encrypted_text += char
            index = alphabet.find(char)
            new_index = (index + offset) % len(alphabet)
            encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
    print('plain text:', message)
    print('encrypted text:', encrypted_text)

caesar(text, 13)

/* User Editable Region */

At this point, I’m pretty sure this is bugged. Or am I misunderstanding info?

Nevermind. I fixed the problem. I didn’t understand the instructions correctly.

Hi @Deadmansprice

“At the bottom of your code, call your function again.”

So do not change the original code, but add a new line of code.

Happy coding
