Magine, a transposition algorithm

Date: Mar 3, 2003
Author: Ziad
Description: One of the cryptic methods that Nostrodamus used to conceal his writings from the authorities of the day was to transpose (mix up) names and words. For example, one name Nostrodamus mentions is Chiren, which of course sounds very similar to Chirac or Chiteran. The author likes puzzles, and thus decided to write a text transposition algorithm. Write whatever text you want into the text box and Magine (the name of the program. It comes from the word enigma, spelt backwards and don't forget to switch the 'a' and the 'm') will produce every permutation possible in a plain text file or a HTML file.
