# C++ String Exercises: Count all the words in a given string

## C++ String: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a C++ program to count all the words in a given string.

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:

C++ Code :

``````#include <iostream> // Including input/output stream library
#include <string> // Including string handling library
using namespace std; // Using the standard namespace

// Function to count the number of words in a string
int Word_count(string text) {

int ctr = 0; // Initializing a counter variable to count words

// Loop through the string and count spaces to determine words
for (int x = 0; x < text.length(); x++) {
if (text[x] == ' ') // Checking for spaces to count words
ctr++; // Increment the counter for each space found
}
return ctr + 1; // Return the count of words by adding 1 to the total number of spaces (plus 1 for the last word without a trailing space)
}

// Main function
int main() {
// Displaying the count of words in different strings
cout << "Original string: Python, number of words -> " << Word_count("Python") << endl;
cout << "\nOriginal string: CPP Exercises, number of words -> " << Word_count("CPP Exercises") << endl;
cout << "\nOriginal string: After eagling the Road Hole on Thursday, he missed an 8-footer for birdie Friday., \nnumber of words -> ";
cout << Word_count("After eagling the Road Hole on Thursday, he missed an 8-footer for birdie Friday.") << endl;
return 0; // Return 0 to indicate successful completion
}
``````

Sample Output:

```Original string: Python, number of words -> 1

Original string: CPP Exercises, number of words -> 2

Original string: After eagling the Road Hole on Thursday, he missed an 8-footer for birdie Friday.,
number of words -> 14

```
