is a handy utility to help solve the cryptograms that appear in the daily newspapers. Cryptogram Puzzle Tool is a program that aids in solving the simple cryptogram puzzles that appear in the daily newspapers, mainly by 1) updating all occurrences whenever you enter a character substitution, and 2) providing on-the-fly character frequency and used/not-used character lists.
A built-in encrypting function also allows you to create new puzzles, either from text you enter manually or from small ASCII files. This version adds extensive mouse-based functionality, allowing such things as character substitution via drag and drop. There are also special cursors and scroll bars to increase functionality.
