So my assignment is to take a file, read it in, and than count each character, store the character and print a graph vertically, using a ratio to scale it, and print the character and amount of each character on the bottom, but the only trouble im having is printing the graph...I can't figure it out. If someone would like to help me out, greatly appreciated.

#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <fstream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main()
char letters[26] = {'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i', 'j', 'k', 'l', 'm', 'n', 'o', 'p'
,'q', 'r', 's', 't', 'u', 'v', 'w', 'x', 'y', 'z'};
int count[26] = {0};
string IPFile;
int k = 0;
int most = count[0];
int lines = 40;
int length = 26;
char letter, graph;
//just separating Variables from main code with this comment.
cout << "Please enter the file name inwhich you would\n";
cout << " like the characters a-z to be counted." << endl;
cin >> IPFile;
ifstream infile(IPFile.c_str());
if (infile.is_open())
while (!infile.eof()) //checks to make sure the cin is not eof


if (isalpha(letter))

{ letter = tolower(letter); //converts the line of input to lowercase
letter = letter - 97;
count[letter] = count[letter]++;
for ( k = 0; k < length ; k++)
if (count[k] > length)
most = count[k];
for (int l = lines; l >= 0; l--)
{ graph = (l * most) / lines ;
for (int i = 0; i < 26; i++)
{ if(count[i] >= graph)
{ putchar('*'); }
{ putchar(' '); }
cout << '\n';
for (int d = 0; d < 78; d++)
{ putchar('.'); }
cout << "\n";
for (int i = 0; i < 26; i++)
{ printf("%2c",letters[i]);}
cout << '\n';
return 0;
