Extending a program to count line frequency

I have this simple program to count the word frequency:

#include <iostream>
#include <map>
#include <cctype>
#include <string>
using namespace std;
int main(void) {
  map<string, int> words;
  map<string, int>::iterator i;
string s;
while (cin >> s) {
    transform(s.begin(), s.end(), s.begin(), ::tolower);
for (i=words.begin(); i != words.end(); i++)
    cout << i->first << " " << i->second << endl;
return 0;

Now how do I make it to count line frequency instead of word frequency. Each line is separated by '\n' new line character in the input.


If you want to count the total lines, then its very simple:

 size_t countLine = 0;
 while(std::getline(std::cin, s)) countLine++;

But if you really want to count frequency of same line, then in your code, replace

string s;


line s;

where line is defined as:

struct line : std::string
    friend std::istream & operator >> (std::istream &in, line &ln) 
        return std::getline(in, ln);

Or, you can make it generic:

template<typename CharT, typename Traits = std::char_traits<CharT>, typename Allocator = std::allocator<CharT>>
struct basic_line : public std::basic_string<CharT, Traits, Allocator>
    friend std::basic_istream<CharT, Traits> & operator >> (std::basic_istream<CharT, Traits > &in, basic_line<CharT, Traits, Allocator> &ln) 
        return std::getline(in, ln);

then define these typedefs:

typedef basic_line<char>    line;
typedef basic_line<wchar_t> wline;
