Diamond Pattern C Program


#include<stdio.h>

int main()
{
    int i, n, j;

    printf("Enter number of lines: ");
    scanf("%d", &n);

    /* Upper part of diamond */
    for(i=1;i<=n;i++)
    {
        for(j=1;j<=n-i;j++)
        {
            printf(" ");
        }
        for(j=1;j<=2*i-1;j++)
        {
            printf("*");
        }
        printf("\n");
    }
    /* Lower part of diamond patter */

    for(i=n-1;i>=1;i--)
    {
        for(j=1;j<=n-i;j++)
        {
            printf(" ");
        }
        for(j=1;j<=2*i-1;j++)
        {
            printf("*");
        }
        printf("\n");
    }

    return 0;
}
