Uh, Gene, how does one get to actually see all 32 lines before they scroll off
the screen?  By the time the rexx program ends, I see only the last 6 lines.

I think I got the word "the" so far, and maybe "that", but I need to see more
of what's scrolling off the screen.

------------------ Original Message ------------------
The book's cipher challenge stage 1 is a simple monoalphabetic substitution
cipher.  In this e-mail below is a copy of the book's stage 1 cipher in a
REXX program for AS/400.  With a five minute "fun" break you can break it.
Upload this source to a member of type REXX.  On green-screen WRKMBRPDM &
SEU use option 16, 2, 16, 2 etc. to run and edit the REXX.  Little by
little, replace the 26 blanks in the variable 'TO' with monoalphabetic
substitutions below the variable 'FROM'.  Eventually the plaintext message
will appear.
