    Would anyone mind explaining a 'rotate' cipher?

    I banged my head on it for a short period of time, then decided to 'rotate' my book to the closed position.

    It's an unfortunate naming convention used by the author in the companion book. What the author is referring to is really a columnar transposition cipher. Since a perfectly good name already exists for the cipher, I don't know why he felt the need to muck up the issue by using a term that generally applies to shift ciphers, like ROT-13. Maybe he's afraid of big words?

    The overall poem/password one. Someone mentioned I am looking at a columnar transpositional cipher, but I can't figure out what to do next.

    Default Dash characters

    Hi,
    I have guessed what kind of cipher it is. But only one characters missing or added mess up the result.
    Are the dash of the string included to the text part of the code ?
    Seems sometimes they are part and sometimes only just mentions the carriage return.
