    whats wrong with my code

    after i execute the code by ./code
    >i have entered a pragraph
    >i have pressed Ctrl+Enter to denote EOF
    >then a nothing happened i m supposed to see the results. the console keep on taking input,ie.condition in while got something wrong
    >are there any syntax errors in program

    Code:
    //Code to count spaces and newlines and alpha a and A in a paracgraph
    #include<stdio.h>
    int main()
    {
    static int word,line,a,ca;	
    char c;
    while((c=getchar( ))!=EOF)
    {
    	switch(c)
    	{
    	case ' ' :word++;
    		  break;
    	case '\n':line++;
    		  break;
    	case 'a' :a++;
    		  break;
    	case 'A' :ca++;
    		  break;
    	}
    }
    printf("No:Of Words\t No:Of Lines\tNo:of a's\t No:ofA's\t");
    printf("\n%d\t\t%d\t%d\t%d\t",word,line,a,ca);
    return 0;
    }
    my simple question is whats wrong with the code why am i unable to see results, why the loop is never ending
    i have attached .c and .out file

    What OS is that? The ones I know of are *nix (ctrl-d) and windows (ctrl-z).
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Also, just FYI, using static variables when it's not necessary isn't generally a good idea. (because, afaik, the compiler won't optimize them into registers)

    Instead, just make them normal ints and initialize them to zero manually.
