Hi msaa,

I guess that this is a homework assignment and by the site policy we're not allowed to do it for you.
If you try to do it yourself we'll be able to assist you in it.

Here's a hint

The user will enter a number (called n)

foreach number until n

you have to print n '*'

Try coding it yourself and I'll help you as much as I can

Hope this helps

thank you, no its not a homework.. we had a homework and I did it which was like this:

#include <stdio.h>

int a,n;

main()

{

printf("Enter N: ");
scanf("%d",&d);

for(a=0;a<d;a=a+1) {
printf("*");      }


            return 0;

                }

but I wanted to modify the code so that it will work as I wanted.. tried alot but couldnt get use of it :(

msaa,

Your code was printing just one "*" for each element

try with........

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

main()
{
      int a, b, d;


      printf("Enter N: ");
      scanf("%d",&d);

      /* I want to print N lines */
      for( a = 1; a <= d; a++ )
      {
             /* For each value of 'a' you have to print 'a' '*' */
             for( b = 1; b <= a; b++ )
                  printf("*");      

             printf( "\n" );
      }

      system( "PAUSE" );

      return 0;
}

Hope it helps

yes, the use is for the system( "PAUSE" ); instruction

It does the little "Press any key to continue"......

a++ = a+1 right?

why if I changed it to a+1 in the code it gives errors?

tinchosCommented:
a++ is the same than a = a + 1;

tinchosCommented:
msaa,

In fact

a = a + 1;
a += 1;
a++;
++a;

in this case represents all the same
