comment Implementing a one-time pad without binary?
Ah, sorry. Simplified example: if you combine A (1) with Z (26), it'll product 27, so you wrap it back around (should've said something like mod 26) to A. But it actually uses ASCII values (65 I think for A)

Realized instructions did say use the same pad more than one

comment Implementing a one-time pad without binary?
I've edited the original question to be more explicit: the key being used is fully random (program has a link to random.org for this purpose) and must be at least as long as the plaintext. The program throws an error if the key is too short.

Thanks. Not sure whether to accept this one or Ponchos, but this answer had the advantage of being easier to read and having the history of how Vernam did it.
