    Gotoxy along with FOR Loop

    I want to know that how can I print numbers from 1 to 10 in a way mentioned below :
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    9
    10




    I'm stuck on following ..
    Code:
    # include <stdio.h>
    # include <conio.h>
    
    main()
    {
    int a;
    
    clrscr();
    
    for (a=1; a<=10; a++)
    {           gotoxy(a,a);
                printf("%d",a);
                printf("\n");                      }
    
    getch();
    }

    What do you mean 'stuck on the following'

    Form a COHERENT query, with some detail about what is going wrong in it - from your point of view.

    there is no point outputting a new line because your cursor is moved by gotoxy every iteration of the loop anyway isnt it?

    using (a,a) all that is going to happen is you are getting output at coordinates, : (1,1) , (2,2) , (3,3) , (4,4)

    what shape do you think that will output, versus what you want to achieve?

    And:

    Code:
    int main() { return 0; }
    And ditch the bloomin turbot sea.

    Code:
    # include <stdio.h>
     
    int main()
    {
      int a;
     
      for ( a=1; a <= 10 ; a++ )
      {
         // find a way to print 5 spaces if a is an even number
         printf("%d\n",a);
      }
     
      getch();
    
      return 0;
    }
    Your code uses nonstandard functions. Try to stick to the standard, so it will work on any operating system and with any compiler. I removed the nonstandard parts. All you need to do is to check if the content of your "a" variable is even (i.e. 2 or 4 or 6 or 8) and print more spaces before you print the number.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Closed for double posting. This is C, so I will let the C board thread survive.
