    char str[100];

    int i;

   int freq[256] = {0};

   //Accepting inputs.

    printf("Enter the string: ");

    gets(str);

   //Calculating frequency of each character.

    for(i = 0; str[i] != '\0'; i++)

    {

        freq[str[i]]++;

    }

    printf("The non repeating characters are: ");

    for(i = 0; i < 256; i++)

    {
