In this tutorial, we are going to write a C program to copy one string into another and count the number of characters copied in C Programming with practical program code and step-by-step full complete explanation.

C program to count the number of characters copied into string


C Program to count the number of characters copied into a string.

 
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>

void main()
{
    char string1[80], string2[80];
    int i;

    printf("Enter a string\n");
    printf("?");
    scanf("%s",string2);

    for(i=0;string2[i]!='\0';i++)
        string1[i]=string2[i];

    string1[i]='\0';

    printf("\n");
    printf("%s\n",string1);
    printf("Number of characters=%d\n",i);
}


Output

Enter a string
? Manchester
Manchester
Number of characters=10

Enter a string
?westminister

Westiminister
Number of characters=11
