Hi,

I've written a program that accepts a string of characters from the user as input and then filters it through an array (ASCII values of lower case alphabet) to find out how many times each letter occurs, but now I have reprompt the user to enter more input (in the form of a word) and then search the the users Original input to see how many times the word appears within it :roll:
I know that I will have to create another method to re-prompt the user for more input, but would I also have to create another method for another array containing the original string to search through? or there some easier way that im missing here.



-thanks
