Create a program that will input a sentence and push each character onto the stack all the while counting the number of characters. Then pop off each character and print them backwards (natural with a stack) and print the length. Like so:

I like burgers!

The number of characters is 15

Note, don't count the '\n' nor push it onto the stack. The stack should be empty when finished. Use an ".equate" to define a label to reference the top of the stack (can be any name but when you pop off the character, you need to use that label defined by the equate).

Note: Do NOT have a branch at the top like with the textbook examples. Place your data and the END of the program (before ".END") and have your program start at location 0 (WITHOUT the first branch). I'll ding you a point if you do.

Here is what I have so far...

ch:       .equate  1
count:   .equate   2
tos:     .equate   3
count2:  .equate   4
         lda      0,i 
         chari    ch,d 
         ldbytea  ch,d
for:     cpa      '\n',i
         breq    count  
         stbytea  -1,s
         subsp    1,i
         lda      count,d 
         adda     1,i
         sta      count,d

         charo    tos,s 
         addsp    1,s
         lda      count2,d 
         suba     1,i
         sta      count2,d

I really don't have much expertise with assembly and pep/8. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
