I need to crack a Playfair encoded text without knowing the keyword. While searching the internet I found a way to do this using a 'shotgun climbing hill' method. Problem is, I can't decide how to quantify one solution against the other. I'm pretty sure the text is in English.
Any help would be appreciated.
