Try this solution and compress for string

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(void) {
        // your code goes here
        char string[100], output[25];
        // initializing each index with zero
        for(int i=0;i<26;i++) {
            output[i] = 0;
        scanf("%[^\n]s", string);
        // getting count of each char
        for(int i=0;string[i] !='\0'; i++) {
        int counter =0;

        for(int i=0;i<26;i++) {
            if(output[i]!=0) {
                printf("%c%d", (char)(i+97), output[i]);
                counter = 0;
        return 0;
use this function to get size of new string so you dont waste memory

int size_of_cmp_string(char s[])
int i=0;
int new_size_of_string=0;

while(i != strlen(s))
if(i < strlen(s))

if(s[i] != s[i+1])
while(s[i] == s[i+1])
if((i+1) == strlen(s))

return new_size_of_string;}
