C++ program to print frequency of characters in a string

#include <iostream>
#include <cstring>

using namespace std;
int main(){
    char inputString[1000];
    // we are using an integer array(initialized with zero) to store 
    // frequency of characters at index equal to their ascii value
    int i, count[256] = {0};
    cout << "Enter a String\n";
    for(i=0; inputString[i] != '\0'; i++){
        // Populate frequency count array
    cout << "\nCharacter   Frequency\n";
    for(i=0; i < 256; i++){
        if(count[i] != 0){
          cout <<"  " << (char)i << "         " << count[i]<< endl;                    
    return 0;
