Language/Type: VB string parameters return

Write a function named WordCount that accepts a string as its parameter and returns the number of words in the string. A word is a sequence of one or more non-space characters (any character other than " "c). For example, the call of WordCount("hello, how are you?") should return 4.

Constraints: Do not use a Scanner to help you solve this problem. Do not use any data structures such as arrays to help you solve this problem. Do not use the String function split on this problem. But you can declare as many simple variables like int, char, etc. as you like. Declaring String variables is also fine.

Function: Write a VB function as described, not a complete program.
