out of shere time constraint I'll repost my updated querey      I need to call a function form main, my f/p is
void CountLetters(string, length, freq[], SIZE)
string is my string*, length is the size freq is an array[26] size#26
I need to be able to search through the string find the count of each letter and assign into corrospontding space in the array ie freq[0]= # of a's, freq[1] = # of b's both upper and lowers.
I need the array set up that way so I can sort it with anther array that contains the alphabet, need to be able to count the letters and put the values in the array freq

void Count_letters (char *string,int length,int *count,int size)
{
   int i;
   int ch;
   memset (count,0,sizeof(int)*size);

      for (i=0;i<length;i++) {
        ch=string[i];
             if (isalpha(ch) {
                  ch = tolower(ch)-'a';
           if (ch < size)
                     count [ch]++;
        }
    }
}
