I need help locating Vigenère cypher decoder. [more inside]

I decided to give the Kryptos Sculpture a crack but need some technical help. I taught myself the methods of solving the first three sections using paper and pencil but that is pretty labor intensive and I was hoping to automate some of the tasks.

I have found and am using, Elonka's Vigenère Table Builder to create a double key table. Additionally, I am using a Vigenère encoder/decoder I found here, but it doesn't allow custom tables. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about computer coding to play with the source code.

I googled around but couldn't find a Vigenère decoder with ability to use custom tables. Any ideas where I could find one would be great.

The Tools page at lists Sharky's Vignere decoder... might do the trick. Don't know about the custom tables bit, though.

Thanks blag. Unfortunately, that is only a single key decoder without a custom table. But I had never seen before so thanks for the pointer.

You're welcome. If you're nerd enough to tackle the Kryptos, you'll love it over there... Maybe ask on the forum?

In fact...
