c++11 - C++ problem with understanding of counting char variables


I wrote a program that supposed to print the number of characters that i entered till it hits the '#' character. what i don't understand is, when i input in the console more than one character (say "hello world") the program count all the characters in one iteration. why does it count all the character in one iteration instead of 1?

char ch;
int count = 0;
cout << "Enter characters; enter # to quit:\n";
while (ch != '#')
    cout << ch;
    cin.get(ch); // use it again
cout << endl << count << " characters read\n";

It does not. You can verify that by changing the output a bit in the loop.

while (ch != '#')
   cout << "ch: " << ch << ", count: " << count << endl;
   cin.get(ch); // use it again
