    Code:
    printf("*******\n*** ***\n** **\n* *\n*\n");
    Ask a silly question...

    look up loops like for or while...
    print required number of *s in every iteration.
    Code:
    >+++++++++[<++++++++>-]<.>+++++++[<++++>-]<+.+++++++..+++.[-]>++++++++[<++++>-] <.>+++++++++++[<++++++++>-]<-.--------.+++.------.--------.[-]>++++++++[<++++>- ]<+.[-]++++++++++.

    Right, so where exactly in your post do you say anything about printing a diamond? Oh, that's right! You didn't say anything anywhere about it. See how silly it was for you to post what you did, considering there's a PREVIEW button and an EDIT button?

    With the number of *'s printed per line in the original post, I don't see how it's possible to get a diamond shape even if the indentation is wrong. One would imagine that the top and bottom line of *'s would have the same number of *'s in it for it to print a diamond shape.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
