Program Explanation

Get a String using fgets() function.

Str -> reads the string and stores it in str.

50 -> reads maximum of 50 characters stdin-> reads character from keyboard read character s using scanf() for loop iterates and check each character whether it is s.

if(str[i]==s) then prints I, else moves to next character.
