    Kuwait:
    After all this explanations and codes, it should be clear now!

    I like the code Prelude wrote.
    but I think the main() function should return a value, but it's realy nice.

    It's a matter of personal taste. I usually omit the return 0, in favor of code brevity. Both ways are vaild in ISO C++.

    use printf() if you must.
    I like Prelude's code , but what does the (~n & k) test for?
    Compilers:
    GCC on Red Hat 8.1 (Primary)
    GCC on Mac OS X 10.2.4 (Secondary)

    Others:
    MinGW on XP

          printf("*");

     }
    You want 10-i spaces before each line of stars right?
    so just print 10-i spaces. Meaning, print a space 10-i times.
    Take the printf("\n"); out of the second inside for loop, and put it at the very end of the outside for loop. The rest (arguably) is up to you.

    ~Inquirer, over and out.

    is this the way that you want??

    *
    **
    ***
    ****
    *****
    ******


    if so the code is this
    Code:
    /*
    for(int i=1; i<=9; i++)
    	{
    		for(int k=10-i; k>0; k--)
    		{
    		printf(" ");
    		}
    		for(int j=1; j<=i; j++)
    		{
    		printf("*");
    		}
    		printf("\n");
    	}
    
    
    */

    That's new, I didn't know that you can ommit the return 0 in the int main() function.
    Thanks for that.

    Nested for-loops aren't neccessary:
    Code:
    for (int i=1;i<=10;++i)
      cout << setw(i) << setfill('*') << "" << endl;
    EDIT:

    Perhaps this is more what you want:
    Code:
    for (int i=1;i<=10;++i)
      cout << setw(10-i)<<setfill(' ') << ""<< setw(i) << setfill('*') << "" << endl;
