Problem Set 4 - Questions 4 and 5 My code for question 4, gets the shifts to decode all the encoded strings I tried. However when I try to decode the fable, it messes up because it finds valid words that aren't part of the text. I included a list of those words in my code. Can you help me fix it please? http://dpaste.com/788878/

    Mine did the same thing. So what I did was create a recursive formula. Mine ran like this 1) finds wrong word. 2)on next search(or a few down the road), it finds none, then it goes in to a while loop (while found_word==None) where it removes the last word you found and looks for one that is longer and replaces it. If that results in None, it goes back to the word two before until it eventually fixes the misguided word.
