This article is created to cover program in Python, that count and prints total number of repeated characters available in a given string entered by user at run-time.

Count Total Number of Repeated Characters in a String

The question is, write a Python program to count total repeated characters available in a string entered by user. Here is its answer:

rChar = 0
rCharList = []
k = 0

print("Enter the String: ")
text = str(input())

textList = list(text)
tot = len(text)

for i in range(tot):
  if text[i] in textList:
    if text[i] not in rCharList:
      newText = text[i+1:]
      newTot = len(newText)
      for j in range(newTot):
        if newText[j]==text[i]:
          rChar = rChar+1
          rCharList.insert(k, text[i])
          k = k+1
          break

print("\nTotal Repeated Character(s): ")
print(rChar)

Here is its sample run:

python count repeated characters in string

Now supply the input say codescracker.com as string and press ENTER key to count and print the number of repeated characters available in the given string:

count repeated characters in string python

Note - In the string codescracker.com, the repeated characters are c, o, e, r

To format the output-looks of previous program in better way, then change the following code:

print("Enter the String: ")

with the statement given below:

print(end="Enter the String: ")

And then block of code given below:

print("\nTotal Repeated Character(s): ")
print(rChar)

with following statement:

print("\nTotal Repeated Character(s): " + str(rChar))

After changing these two codes or block of code, here is the new output look of sample run with user input codescracker this time:
