C++ Program to Print Left Arrow Star Pattern

Write a C++ program to print the left arrow star pattern using for loop. 

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
	int i, j, k, rows;
     
    cout << "Enter Left Arrow Star Pattern Row = ";
    cin >> rows;

    cout << "Left Arrow Star Pattern\n"; 

    for(i = 1; i <= rows; i++)
    {
    	for(j = 1; j <= rows - i; j++)
		{
            cout << " ";
        }
        for(k = i; k <= rows; k++)
        {
            cout << "*";
        }
        cout << "\n";
    }	

    for(i = 1; i < rows; i++)
    {
    	for(j = 0; j < i; j++)
		{
            cout << " ";
        }
        for(k = 0; k <= i; k++)
        {
            cout << "*";
        }
        cout << "\n";
    }
 	return 0;
}
C++ Program to Print Left Arrow Star Pattern

This C++ example prints the left arrow pattern of a given character using a while loop.

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
	int i, j, k, rows;
    char ch;
     
    cout << "Enter Left Arrow Star Pattern Row = ";
    cin >> rows;

    cout << "Enter Symbol for Left Arrow Pattern = ";
    cin >> ch;

    cout << "Left Arrow Star Pattern\n"; 

    i = 1;
    while( i <= rows)
    {
        j = 1;
    	while( j <= rows - i)
		{
            cout << " ";
            j++;
        }
        k = i;
        while( k <= rows)
        {
            cout << ch;
            k++;
        }
        cout << "\n";
        i++;
    }	

    i = 1;
    while( i < rows)
    {
        j = 0;
    	while( j < i)
		{
            cout << " ";
            j++;
        }
        k = 0;
        while( k <= i)
        {
            cout << ch;
            k++;
        }
        cout << "\n";
        i++;
    }
 	return 0;
}
