C Program to Count the Number of Characters Words and Lines in a file2 min read

In this tutorial, we will write a C program to count the number of characters words, and lines in a text file. Before that, you may go through the following C topics.

Explanation: The program takes the user input for the file name or file path (if not present in the same directory). Then computes using while loop.

There are three integer variables in a program whose values are incremented by one whenever the condition is fulfilled. When the file reaches the end of the file, the execution control comes out of the loop and finally displays the counted result.
