C program to count the leaves of the binary tree.

Write a C program to count the leaves of the binary tree.
Binary tree is the ordered directed tree data structure, in which each node has at most two nodes.
A node is called as a leaf node,  if it does not contains any child elements. In this program, We used the structures to create the binary tree.
