Prerequisite: Flex (Fast lexical Analyzer Generator) Given a string containing both vowels and consonants, write a LEX program to count the number of vowels and consonants in given string. Examples:

Input: Hello everyone
Output: Number of vowels are: 6
        Number of consonants are: 7


Input: This is GeeksforGeeks
Output: Number of vowels are: 7
        Number of consonants are: 12

Approach- Approach is very simple. If any vowel is found increase vowel counter, if consonant is found increase consonant counter otherwise do nothing. Below is the implementation: 

C

%{
    int vow_count=0;
    int const_count =0;
%}
 
%%
[aeiouAEIOU] {vow_count++;}
[a-zA-Z] {const_count++;}
%%
int yywrap(){}
int main()
{
    printf("Enter the string of vowels and consonants:");
    yylex();
    printf("Number of vowels are:  %d\n", vow_count);
    printf("Number of consonants are:  %d\n", const_count);
    return 0;
}

                    

Output:
