Can anyone help me with this looping program. I need to develop a program that prints out the approximate number of words in a file of text. I want to include the gaps between the words also. I am going to echo print the the data to the user. I know a loop is going to be used to make the program easier to develop. If anyone has something that can be of some use to me I will be checking the thread throughout the day. Also if you have any questions I will get back to them ASAP.
