    Assuming you are on Linux/Unix, Ctrl-D signals the end of file/transmission thus
    Code:
    while ((c = getchar()) != EOF)
    is sufficient.

    Got it working! for real this time

    set \t and '' to state OUT
    set \n to increment and state out
    default if char increment and fixed the word count as another if statement proceeding that.

    Thanks for everyone's help. In three months from now, when I am an expert programmer I will remember you all.
