    i was able to create a program on how to count words from a text file but im having problems on how to count and display the "special characters" from this text file. Im referring to special characters like "." ";" "?" "!" "(" etc...

    any ideas? :)

    Loop through the string in the same manner as you do for the characters and add each numbers when any such character is found.
