/*************************************************************************
 *  Compilation:  javac Rot13.java
 *  Execution:    java Rot13 string
 *  
 *  Encodes the string using Rot13. Rot13 works by replacing each upper
 *  and lower case letters with the letter 13 positions ahead or behind
 *  it in the alphabet. The encryption algorithm is symmetric - applying
 *  the same algorithm a second time recovers the original message.
