    you want to count the occurance of characters in teh strign array that are not alphanumeric or symbols, i.e. spaces, tabs, possibly underscores.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Whitespace is space/tabs/newline characters. I'd suggest the simple use of operator>> to extract whitespace delimited words from your file coupled with a counter.
