This seems like such a simple question but I'm not finding the solution easily.  

I'm learning java right now and am trying to build a simple asci image with "\" that increases in size by 1 for each new line.  

Below is the for loop that I've created.  

Any ideas greatly appreciated.  
System.out.print("\\");
for (int space =1; space <= (1 * line); space++) {
     System.out.print ("");
}

Here's is how i would write such a program. You pretty much need to have two loops. One for the lines and then one to output character in each line.
class Sample
{
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{
		int lineCount = 10;
 
		for(int line = 1; line <= lineCount; line++)
		{
			for(int i = 0; i < line; i++)
				System.out.print("\\");
 
			System.out.println("");
		}
	}
}
