    Yes.
    But I rather suspect the point of the exercise is for you to try it yourself first, see what happens and then post your attempt and more detailed question if you get stuck.

    It's not an exercise to see who's got the best google and / or blagging skills to get someone else to do your HOMEWORK

    Why the hell was this thread called struct: ?
    Anyway there are tutorials on this site and a million others explaining how pointers work.
    Google.

    owkie... owk... ook, ook.

    We are always just one step away from our ancestors. But some are closer.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Well how about starting with a program which inputs a word, then examines each character

    Eg.
    Input is
    Hello

    Output is
    H is upper case
    e is lower case
    l is lower case

    etc.

    Counting them is one small step on from there

    You may find the isupper() and islower() functions in ctype.h useful.

    I am fine, I just don't care for people who expect people to do their homework for them. Also I don't care for how you blatantly disregard the posts that were aimed at helping you get a start into this project, even though you don't really deserve it.

    Dude, this is your answer (from Salem):

    >> You may find the isupper() and islower() functions in ctype.h useful.

    check out what he says! Use a loop with these functions and have variables which change depending on the result of them. If you are stuck, don't ask us how to use these functions, cause I know for a fact that there are lots of examples on these forums on how to use them. Use the search feature on the site!

    EDIT:

    Please please can you learn to type properly.

    xorry = sorry.
    nweiz = (I think) anyway.
    owkie = ok, or okay.
    and plzzz = please
