Using strlen() is easy. Just pass it a string, and it returns the number of characters in the string (not including the NULL character at the end). Here's an example from MSDN:
/* STRLEN.C */
void main( void )
char buffer = "How long am I?";
len = strlen( buffer );
printf( "'%s' is %d characters long\n", buffer, len );
Where exactly are you having problems? With the user input, or with using strlen()? There are a number of ways to get user input into a string.

Ahh...thx for the google link..i forgot to put the () at the end of the strlen in my search. I understand now guys, thanks!
