    WordCount Program

    Hey I am looking for a program in C++ that counts the words inputed by a user including any spaces. Usually something like this would give any output statement that tells the user the wordcount. I need this to reference something else for a project. This type of program is common so if anyone can help me out that would be great.

    strtok() might work.
    Look it up.

    >>words inputed by a user including any spaces

    Do you mean letters? If so just use strlen() or something. If you actually meant words separated by spaces then use strcspn() to search for spaces and figure out the count that way.
