Help me with the remaining parts of my assignment. I need to make functions to analyze the file but am at a loss of how to do this.

HW 8 (Capstone) – File Inspector

 

Background

• While all the original applications for computers back in the 1950’s and many, if not most, applications today are

mathematical, there is a large field of computing that deals with text processing. These range from editing and

word processing systems to typesetting to literary analysis. Having some exposure to this type of problems, and

some experience in solving them, is invaluable in preparation for a successful career in software development.

Assignment

• Draw a flowchart, using LucidChart, to document the logic required to complete this program. Save the

flowchart as a PDF file.

• Develop a C++ program, following the logic in your flowchart, to catalog certain facts about the contents of a

text file, including the longest and shortest words, total number of words, and the number of times each word in

a selected group occurs within the file.

• Create the following data storage variables:

o A set of parallel collections (vectors or arrays), each with 50 rows, as follows:

▪ A collection of strings to hold the selected words.

▪ A collection of whole number values for word counts

▪ A collection of floating point values for word frequencies.

o Two strings to hold the shortest and longest words found in the data file.

o A whole number variable to hold the Total Word Count.

• Initialize all counters to zero.

• Read the words from a file named “50Words.txt” into the collection of strings. Clear the collection of word

counts and word frequencies to all zeroes.

• Ask the user to select one of the instructor-provided data files using a menu. Give the user an unlimited number

of attempts to enter a valid selection. Do not proceed until a valid selection has been entered. Do not have the

user enter the filename – have them select a file by number or letter instead.

• Reset all the word counts and word frequencies to zero.

• Open and read the user-selected data file. Examine each word as it is read as follows:

o For the purposes of this assignment, a “word” is any sequence of printable (non-whitespace) characters,

including letters, decimal digits, and punctuation. Words are separated from each other by whitespaces

(spaces, tabs, and newline characters).

o Remove leading and trailing punctuation. All internal punctuation, including hyphens, apostrophes,

periods, etc. must remain in the word. Use the ispunct function in the cctype library to identify

punctuation characters. Continue with this word only if its length is still greater than zero.

o Convert all remaining characters in the word to lower-case.

o Increment the Total Word Count by one.

o If necessary, update the Shortest Word string.

o If necessary, update the Longest Word string.

o If the word matches any word in the collection of strings, increment the corresponding occurrence

count in the collection of word counts.

• After all words have been read from the data file, calculate the frequency of occurrence of each of the

50PopularWord’s by dividing each word’s occurrence count by the Total Word Count, and save the calculated

value in the corresponding element of the collection of word frequencies.

• Display the name of the data file, the shortest word, longest word, and total word count.

• Display the contents of the collection of 50PopularWord’s, their counts, and their frequencies of occurrence in

neat columns. Format the word frequencies with 4 decimal places, right-justified in an 8-characters field.

• Repeat this entire process from asking the user to select a data file to displaying results until the user selects the

“Exit” option from the file menu.

Style

• Document your program according to the guidelines presented in class.

Bonus

• Declare a collection of at least 50 numbers. Use each to accumulate a count of all the words of that length in the

selected data file. For instance, array[5] should hold a count of all words that had a length of exactly 5 characters

(after leading and trailing punctuation were removed). After all other output is complete, display the contents of

this collection, formatted as “N words of length M”, substituting the count for N and the collection index for M.

Do not display word lengths for which the count is zero.

Objectives

• Develop skill in writing and editing C++ code with Visual Studio

• Develop skill in building and running C++ programs with Visual Studio

• Develop skill in reading data values from the console

• Develop skill in formatting data to the console

• Develop skill in designing, implementing, and testing combinations of decision-making and looping structures.

• Gain experience in dealing with parallel arrays and vectors.

• Gain experience in processing strings as words.

• Gain experience in processing strings as sequences of characters.

• Gain experience in reading and writing text files.

• Understand the consequences of errors in program logic.

Reference

• This Wikipedia article shows the comparative ranking of English words:

• 50Words.txt

• HW8DataFiles.zip – contains the following files:
