    I need help!!!

    can you write the things that are below with C programming

    Write a C program that reads several characters from the user until ‘*’ is entered. Assume that the input only consists of lowercase letters. Your program will output the read input in a compressed manner. The idea is to display only one character and its number of occurences for repeated characters. If the input is “jddddyggrcnnfvvvwwwwwbbbf”, the program should display “jd4yg2rcn2fv3w5b3f” .

    Example Run:
    Please enter characters: cccctiiiisbbllllllkeeeeeeeen*

    Welcome to the form Hasangursoy!

    I'd suggest using something like while((c=getchar())!= '*') {, and then put each char into a char array, in order (so you'll need a little i counter variable).

    After all the input was in the array (make it 80 char's or so). Then use your compression logic on it to compress it as you want it.

    Note that this breaks the bigger problem down, into two smaller parts: 1) get input and 2) then do the compression on it.

    Trying to do this all at the same time, may be VERY frustrating!

    Please tell me you're not sitting there, waiting for us to do your homework. If so...you'll be waiting a long time.

    It's not frustrating, if you take it inch by inch - anything's a cinch, right?

    What have you tried to get your input? Post it up, young man! Time's a'wasting.

    C'mon and put some work into it - that's the best way to really learn something - doing it, with occasional bits of advice.

    I weep for today's youth. A written rule shouldn't even be necessary. It's common sense that one should do one's own work, especially when the entire point of the work is education.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    LOL... they are asking you to post C language source code that shows you even tried to solve this problem for yourself.

    Most of the "big guns" here will help you fix problems --they've helped me-- but they are not going to do this for you.

    As it is said: "One can starve to death watching the chef work"
