    scanf is not suitable for this task
    it stops when it sees a space or enter

    use gets or fgets

    for the count problem there is a command--->strlen

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #define LEGAL 1 
    [COLOR=Red]#include <string.h>[/COLOR]
    
    void count(char array[]);
    
    int main(){
        char line[100];
        printf("Hey user enter some lines : ");
        [COLOR=Red]gets(line);[/COLOR]
        count(line);
        getchar();
        return(0);
    }
    /* FUNCTION count */
    
    void count(char array[]){ 
        [COLOR=Red]int z=strlen(array); [/COLOR]       
        printf("%d\n",z);
    }

    fgets is better than gets because it specifies a maximum count and won't overflow the buffer. Use stdin for the file pointer. If the string ends with \n then that is all the user entered; if not, there is more and another call to fgets will pick up the next lot of characters.
