    Counting Characters And Words

    hi
    i have a problem
    i need to do this
    for example
    i will write
    welcome.to programming.welcome
    then it will show me this
    we use "w" for 21 times
    we use "e" for 4 times
    we use "l" for 2 time.
    etc.
    and it will write
    "welcome" used for 2 times

    in summary it will count the letters if how many letters same for each letters and how many words are same in each words.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Did you find any code to start with so that you can post an initial attempt?

    i wrote counting letters. but ı did it with "goto" function ı must learn writing without "goto".
    and ı couldn't find how to write counting words as my first messege
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    #include<string.h>
    int i,j,say;
    main(){
    char isim[20];
    
    clrscr();
    printf("write sentence = "); 
    
    scanf("%s",isim);
    
    for(i=0;i<strlen(isim);i++)
    { 
    for(j=0;j<i;j++){
    
    if(isim[i]==isim[j] || isim[i]==isim[j]+32 ||isim[i]==isim[j]-32) goto atla;}
    
    for(j=i+1;j<strlen(isim);j++) {
    
    if(isim[i]==isim[j] || isim[i]==(isim[j]+32) || isim[i]==isim[j]-32)
    
    say=say+1;
    
    }
    
    printf("%c harfinden = %d tane var.\n",isim[i],say+1); say=0; atla:
    }
    
    getch();
    
    return 0;
    
    }
    PS:"say" means >count
    "isim" means >word
    "atla" means jump

    Let's try to get you started a little better.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <limits.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
       char sentence[] = "welcome.to programming.welcome";
       int  i, count[CHAR_MAX] = {0}; /* initialize letter count */
       /*
        * Go through the sentence and increment the letter count for each letter.
        */
       for ( i = 0; sentence[i]; i++ )
       {
          ++count [ sentence[i] ];
       }
       /*
        * Display the results.
        */
       puts(sentence);
       for ( i = 0; i < CHAR_MAX; i++ )
       {
          if ( count[i] )
          {
             printf("'%c' : %d\n", i, count[i]);
          }
       }
       return 0;
    }
    
    /* my output
    welcome.to programming.welcome
    ' ' : 1
    '.' : 2
    'a' : 1
    'c' : 2
    'e' : 4
    'g' : 2
    'i' : 1
    'l' : 2
    'm' : 4
    'n' : 1
    'o' : 4
    'p' : 1
    'r' : 2
    't' : 1
    'w' : 2
    */
