In problem set 4 (Caesar ciphers), for the last part there are two functions to implement: find_best_shifts and find_best_shifts_rec. What is the difference between the two? Am I to code both of them? Does one use the other?

    coder is the function that actually offsets the letters. encoder and decoder use the coder function by passing in shifts (positive shift for encoder, negative shift for decoder).
