So where are you printing the spaces?Quzah.Code:for each row for each column if row < thickness, print a wall if row > box size - thickness, print a wall if col < thickness, print a wall if col > box size - thickness, print a wall otherwise, print a space print newline
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
I'm going to give a tip.
Let's start simple. Let width = 10, height = 10, thickness = 2.
Now let the console be a coordinate system with origin in the upper-left corner.
Let's see if you can follow me here.
Row zero. We print stars all the way.
Row one. We print stars all the way.
Row two. We print two stars, 6 spaces, then 2 stars. Right?
Repeat this for row 3-7.
Now repeat row 0-1 and we're done.
Let's try to generalize it.
If row is 0 or 1 OR row > is 8 or 9, always print a star for every column.
If row 2...7 AND column is 0 or 1 or 8 or 9, print a star.
Else, print a space.
Try implementing that first and the generalizing it to given values.
Elysia i would like to thank you. your logic helped a lot kinda feel bad that it took me this long to see it and how easy it seems now that i finally got it.
this is what i got
Code:for(row = 0; row < height; row++) { for(column = 0; column < width; column++) { if(row < thickness) { printf("*"); //prints top part } if(row >= (height - thickness)) { printf("*"); // prints bottom part } if(row >= thickness && row < (height - thickness) && column < thickness) { printf("*"); } if(row >= thickness && row < (height - thickness) && column > thickness && column <=(width - thickness)) { printf(" "); } if(row >= thickness && row < (height - thickness) && column >=(width - thickness)) { printf("*"); }
