Application : isupper() function in C programming language is used to find out total number of uppercase present in a given senence.
Example:

Input: GEEKSFORGEEKS
Output: Number of upper case present in the sentence is : 13
Input: GeeksFORGeeks
Output: Number of upper case present in the sentence is : 5
Input: geeksforgeeks
Output: Number of upper case present in the sentence is : 0
// C program to demonstrate
// isupper() function

#include <ctype.h>
#include <stdio.h>

// called function
int ttl_upper(int i, int counter)
{
    char ch;
    char a[50] = "GeeksForGeeks";
    ch = a[0];

    // counting of upper case
    while (ch != '\0') {
        ch = a[i];
        if (isupper(ch))
            counter++;

        i++;
    }

    // returning total number of upper case present in sentence
    return (counter);
}
int main()
{
    int i = 0;
    int counter = 0;

    // calling function
    counter = ttl_upper(i, counter);
    printf("\nNumber of upper case present in the sentence is : %d", counter);
    return 0;
}

Output:

Number of upper case present in the sentence is : 3
