I'd help, but reading your sloppy ass typing is too painful.

in your "count()" function within the body of the "for" loop, test if the character is a space ' '. if the character is a space, then break out of the for loop early by using the "break" command.

if you want to be thorough, test also for \newlines and \tabs

if (c == ' ' || c == '\n' || c == '\t')
   break;

finally, make a nominal effort to spell words correctly. you are not posting from a SMS texting cellphone, so typing "wut" and "wud" and "tat" and "wen" makes you look like a goddamn willful retard. If you do it anymore, i'm never going to help you again.
