# How move each line in text

In steganography is an interesting way of conveying information. Each line is either raised by a few points or not raised at all. How will cause it to subsequent lines of text have been raised about the 4pt up? Map of lifts should be written as possible to change the data every time.

Line shifting, change interline

• Are you saying that you want to encode a message in a document of dummy text by raising certain lines? That sounds cool, possible, and hard. – Matthew Leingang Apr 19 '13 at 15:35
• But you need to provide more details or an example before anybody can help. – Matthew Leingang Apr 19 '13 at 15:47

• Is the text broken up into lines manually or is that left to the line-breaking algorithm? – Christoph B. Apr 19 '13 at 18:59

This hides the first argument in the second, optimised for lowercase ascii only in the first argument (it offsets the ascii code by that of m so that one half of the alphabet raises a line and the other half lowers it. You can use \ to denote a space.
