    parallelogram for statement

    Ok so here the problem i just got into a beginning programming C class and my teacher kind of sucks and i would love some help....

    basically im writing a program that writes a parallelogram with a input of a width and a length...

    so basically if you what the length to be 5 and you want the width to be 4 the output would look like this

    (each row moves over to the right about 2 spaces everytime it goes to the next line)

    pretty simple im assuming... i pretty much understand everything on how to do everything but the for statement part or the while statement im currently trying to use the for statement because i think it is easiest to read... but for the life of me i cant get it to compile and after i input my 2 numbers print anything near to the right thing... if anyone could help me with the basic set up and a brief explanations i would absolutely love it... thanks so much

    Please don't post the same thing multiple times.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
