To do: Discarding the vowels in a string using 'continue' keyword for C programming

To show: How to use the continue C keyword to skip some vowels in the given string


// Example of the 'continue' keyword, discarding the vowels in a string

#include <stdio.h>


void main(void)


// declare storage for input, an array and counter variable

char buffer[81];

int ctr;


// input and read a line of text using puts() and gets() which are predefined functions in stdio.h

// secure versions are puts_s() and gets_s()

puts("Enter a line of text and press Enter key,");

puts("all the vowels will be discarded!:\n");

gets_s(buffer, 81);


//go through the string, displaying only those characters that are not lowercase vowels

for(ctr=0; buffer[ctr] != '\0'; ctr++)


// If the character is a lowercase vowel, loop back without displaying it



// If not a vowel, display it






Output example:


Enter a line of text and press Enter key,

all the vowels will be discarded!:
