## Ques . WAP to count frequency of characters in a given file.Can u use character frequency to test whether the given file is Python program file, C program file or a text file

Program -1

f="C:\\Users\\HP\\Desktop\\g.txt"

file = open ( f, "r" )

a=[]

b={}

for i in file:

for j in range(0,len(i)):

a.append(i[j])

for i in a:

if i in b:

b[i]+=1

else:

b[i]=1

print(b)

c=f.split(".")

if c[1]=="txt":

print("\n\nit is a text file")

elif c[1]=="cpp":

print("\n\nit is a c++ file")

else:

print("\n\nit is a c file")

Output 1 :

{'g': 2, 'o': 7, 'e': 12, 'd': 4, 'u': 5, 'h': 1, 'b': 1, ' ': 13, 'w': 4, 'l': 3, 'c': 1, 'm': 3, 's': 4, 'y': 1, '!': 3, '\n': 2, 'p': 2, 'r': 7, 'v': 2, 'i': 7, 'f': 1, 'n': 6, 't': 4, 'a': 3}

it is a text file

Program 2 :

import collections

import pprint

file_input = "D:\\Komal\\n1\\goeduhub\\python.txt"

with open(file_input, 'r') as info:

value = pprint.pformat(count)

print(value)

a=file_input.split(".")

if a[1]=="txt":

print("it is a text file")

elif a[1]=="cpp":

print("it is a c++ file")

else:

print("it is a c file")

Output 2 :

Counter({' ': 25,

'E': 21,

'I': 16,

'N': 16,

'O': 15,

'T': 12,

'S': 11,

'L': 10,

'.': 9,

'U': 8,

'R': 8,

'A': 8,

'W': 7,

'D': 6,

',': 6,

'G': 5,

'H': 5,

'M': 5,

'V': 5,

'C': 4,

'P': 4,

'\n': 3,

'Q': 3,

'F': 2,

'1': 1,

'B': 1,

'2': 1,

'3': 1,

'Y': 1,

'4': 1})

it is a text file
