    Code:
    void PrintString(char* String)
    {
       cout << String;
    }
    
    PrintString("Hello");
    But it would be simplier (and faster) to use cout << "Hello"; directly without the use of such function.

    here:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    
    using namespace std;
    
    void showstring(char*);
    
    int main(){
    	showstring("Pie is good");
    	cin.get();
    	return(0);
    }
    
    void showstring(char* s){
    	cout<<s;
    }
    Check the tutorial for counting char and spaces. It's easy enough to follow.

    here you go.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string.h>
    
    void printstring(char* str1){ cout<< str1;}
    
    int main(){
     cout<<" Enter any string to be printed";
     getline(cin, str1);
     printsting(str1); 
    
     return 0 ;// as we know.
     }// end main
    I think this will cover everything,
    C++
    The best
