Your program must: - Take a date as input, in 8 figure format (day or month, month or day, year) - Take input of a string of any length. - Shift the first letter by the first figure of the date, the next letter by the next number, etc. Start again at the first number after 8 alphabetic characters. - Preserve all non-alphabetic characters, without skipping a number of the date. - Use a modular alphabet, lowercase then uppercase. (so 'Z' shifted by 1 becomes an 'a') - assume a caesar shift (letters are always shifted forward through a standard ordered alphabet) - Example: "Ab ?Z" shifted by 12/34/56 => "Bd ?c"

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hi, and welcome to PPCG! Unfortunately, this isn't very well specified, and doesn't have an objective winning criterion. Furthermore, if this is a homework assignment, it's unlikely to get many answers. If you need help with fixing your program, you can try Stack Overflow instead. (make sure to read their help center first) \$\endgroup\$ – Rɪᴋᴇʀ Apr 16 '17 at 18:25
  • \$\begingroup\$ In addition to being very hard to understand exactly what submissions should, this is very close to a duplicate of this challenge. \$\endgroup\$ – DJMcMayhem Apr 16 '17 at 18:30
