Print the given pattern recursively

CServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Here, as per the given problem pattern needs to be displayed using recursive approach.

Recursive function is the one that calls itself n number of times. There can be ‘n’ number of recursive function in a program. The problem working with recursive function is their complexity.

Algorithm

START
Step 1 -> function int printpattern(int n)
If n>0
Printpattern(n-1)
Print *
End IF
End
Step 2 -> function int pattern(int n)
If n>0
pattern(n-1)
End IF
Printpattern(n)
Print \n
End
STOP

Example

#include <stdio.h>
int printpattern(int n) {
if(n>0) {
printpattern(n-1);
printf("*");
}
}
int pattern(int n) {
if(n>0) {
pattern(n-1); //will recursively print the pattern
}
printpattern(n); //will reduce the n recursively.
printf("\n"); //for new line
}
int main(int argc, char const *argv[]) {
int n = 7;
pattern(n);
return 0;
}

Output

if we run above program then it will generate following output.
