Program Explanation

In this C# program, we are creating an object ‘obj’ variable to the abbreviation class. In readdata() function we are reading a string using ‘str’ variable. In abbre() procedure we are printing the abbreviation of a text.


Compute the length of the string present in the ‘str’ variable. For loop is used to print the abbreviation of the text. Initialize the value of ‘i’ variable as 0 and check the condition that the value of ‘i’ variable is less than or equal to the length of the string entered by the user.

If the condition is true then execute the iteration of the loop. If condition statement is used to check the value of c[] variable is equal to empty space or newline using Logical OR Operator, if the condition is true then execute the statement. Print the string obtained from the user and the abbreviation of the corresponding string.
