    Help Reverse|Decryption algorithm

    Hi all..
    I have developed a simple algorithm (similar to encryption) below.. The problem is i am able to encrypt a string with a key. but not able to get it back with the same key. i know this algorithm is reversible.. help me on how to do it.. Below is the program (attached)

    Here is more details on how my encryption works

    I have created a array of 26 x 26 holding all alphavets in the following manner

    A B C D E F G H I ..........X Y Z
    B C D E F G H I J ..........Y Z A
    C D E F G H I J K ..........Z A B
    D E F G H I J K L...........A B C
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Z A B C D E F G H.........W X Y



    So what the program does is bases in the key it selects the line. FOr example if the key's 1 char is b it selects the second line. If it is c it selects the third line and so on. SO based on this if the user input's first char is say d. Then it selects the 3rd char from the line selected using the key. After the last char of the key to encrypt the remaining text the keys value is used from the begining. Hope you understood it.

    Now i need help from you to write a program to reverse this. that is if the user inputs the key and the encrypted message the original message must be generated.

    Hope you guys can help me..
    Thanx

    OK, some tips

    1. its int main, not void main

    2. main is over 350 lines long - use some functions, and simplify!

    3. Learn to indent properly, it will help you figure out what is going on.

    4. this doesn't work as you want
    if(argv<2 | argv>2)

    Firstly, it should be argc, not argv, and secondly, its ||, not |
    so
    if ( argc < 2 || argc > 2)
    or even
    if ( argc != 2 )

    5. Instead of lots of things like
    if(encr[i]=='a' || encr[i]=='A')
    index1=0;
    Try
    index1 = (toupper(encr[i])) - 'A';
    Does all 52 letters in one line of code
