    The odds of count_l being '3' are probably not that high since you've initialized it to zero. It would take 51 characters to satisfy the test condition of count_l == '3'

    I'd try cin.get and use the new line char to display your output of digits and / or characters.

    while(cz = cin.get())
        if(cz >= '0' && cz <= '9')
        // letters check
        if(cz == '\n')
            // output digits and / or character count
            // reset count_c and count_l to 0
            // if wanted, check some other var for being '3'
            // or use break; statement here to exit while loop
