I'm attempting to figure out how to do this pattern. I'm learning C through a book but it has no answers to its questions. Here the pattern
       A
      ABA
     ABCBA
    ABCDCDA
   ABCDEDCBA

so far i have done this

int row, space, ascen, desc;
char input, ch;
int str;

printf("Please enter a letter");
scanf("%c", &input);

str=sizeof(input)/2;

for(row='A';row<=input;row++)
{
for(space=str;space<=input;space++)
   for(ascen=row;ascen<=input;ascen++)
     for(desc=input;desc>row;desc--)
printf("%c", ch);
}

Obviously this does not work, any pointers at all please!

Thank You
