    Unhappy calculating the frequency of a word !

    hello guys,
    who would like to help create a function that calculates the number of a specific word (entered by the user) in a text. the program should continue reading the text until it finds a dot (.)
    the prototype should be : int countWordInText(char* text, int size, char* wordToCount);
    ps : scanf( ) is not appropriate since the text may contain spaces and new lines. e.g. a paragraph.
    The text will have as a sentinel a dot .
    Have 200 as a MAX_SIZE for the text,

    thank you

    What sort of "help"?

    If you're looking for a free answer on a plate, then move on.

    Otherwise, post your best effort to date, and ask a specific question, like
    "Here's my code, it reads a line, how do I extract words from the line"
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
