Given a string str with uppercase, lowercase and special characters. The input string is to end with either a space or a dot. The problem is to calculate the number of words, vowels and frequency of each character of the string in a separate line.

Example : 

Input : How Good GOD Is.

Output : 
Number of words = 4
Number of vowels = 5
Number of upper case characters = 6
Character =   Frequency = 3
Character = . Frequency = 1
Character = D Frequency = 1
Character = G Frequency = 2
Character = H Frequency = 1
Character = I Frequency = 1
Character = O Frequency = 1
Character = d Frequency = 1
Character = o Frequency = 3
Character = s Frequency = 1
Character = w Frequency = 1

Approach : We use a TreeMap to store characters and their frequencies. TreeMap is used to get the output in sorted order.

Below is Java implementation of above approach : 

C++




// C++ program to print Number of Words,
// Vowels and Frequency of Each Character
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
void words(string str)
{
    int wcount = 0, ucount = 0, vcount = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < str.length(); i++)
    {
        char c = str[i];
        switch (c)
        {
            case ' ':
            case '.':
            wcount++; // more delimiters can be given
        }
 
        switch (c)
        {
            case 'A':
            case 'E':
            case 'I':
            case 'O':
            case 'U':
            case 'a':
            case 'e':
            case 'i':
            case 'o':
            case 'u':
                vcount++;
        }
 
        if (c >= 65 and c <= 90) ucount++;
    }
 
    cout << "Number of words = "
         << wcount << endl;
    cout << "Number of vowels = "
         << vcount << endl;
    cout << "Number of upper case characters = "
         << ucount << endl;
}
 
// Function to calculate the frequency
// of each character in the string
void frequency(string str)
{
    // Creates an empty TreeMap
    map<char, int> hmap;
 
    // Traverse through the given array
    for (int i = 0; i < str.length(); i++)
        hmap[str[i]]++;
 
    // Print result
    for (auto i : hmap)
    {
        cout << "Character = " << i.first;
        cout << " Frequency = "
             << i.second << endl;
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main(int argc, char const *argv[])
{
    string str = "Geeks for Geeks.";
    words(str);
    frequency(str);
    return 0;
}

Output

Number of words = 3
Number of vowels = 5
Number of upper case characters = 2
Character =   Frequency = 2
Character = . Frequency = 1
Character = G Frequency = 2
Character = e Frequency = 4
Character = f Frequency = 1
Character = k Frequency = 2
Character = o Frequency = 1
Character = r Frequency = 1
Character = s Frequency = 2

Time Complexity : O(n), where n is the number of characters in the string. 
Auxiliary Space : O(1).
