but the code is not compiling
i am getting the foolowing errors
C:\Dev-Cpp\files\patterns.cpp:102: error: name lookup of `j' changed for new ISO `for' scoping
C:\Dev-Cpp\files\patterns.cpp:98: error: using obsolete binding at `j'
C:\Dev-Cpp\files\patterns.cpp:115: error: name lookup of `p' changed for new ISO `for' scoping
C:\Dev-Cpp\files\patterns.cpp:112: error: using obsolete binding at `p'

now i have not tackled such errors before . pls help.
here is the code

for(int i=1;i<=5;i++)
                {
                        for(int s=4;s>=i;s++)
                        cout<<" ";
                        for(int j=1;j<=i;j++)
                        cout<<j;
                        if(i>=2)
                        {
                                for(int k=j-2;k>=1;k--)
                                cout<<k;
                        }
                        cout<<endl;
                }
                for(int m=1;m<5;m++)
                {
                        for(int sp=1;sp<=m;sp++)
                        cout<<" ";
                        
                        for(int p=1;p<5;p++)
                        cout<<p;
                        
                        for(int t=p-2;t>=1;t--)
                        cout<<t;
                        
                        cout<<endl;
                }

According to new ISO standard, variables declared inside for loop are not accessible after its scope end...for example

for(int i=0;i<5;i++)
{
 cout<<i;
}// memory for i releases and won't be accessible after this...you need to declare i again to use it.

thanks i got it and made suitable changes but there is a logical error in the prog can anyone point that out. it compiled well but i gotta prob making this pattern. actually i was making a big program having 4 patterns but its over an hour working on this pattern . the other three are working fine. i am including the code . check case 4.

There are lot of issues with ur code...

#include<conio.h>
#include<stdio.h>
#include<ctype.h>

don't mix c-headers with c++ headers....<conio.h> is non-standard...use<cctype> instead of<ctype.h>.

fflush(stdin)

is wrong...fflush() is not meant to clear input stream...
see the change

case '4': cout<<endl<<endl;
                for(int i=1;i<=5;i++)
                {
                        for(int s=4;s>=i;s--)

These People Dont Take Care Of Iso Standards . Cbse Needs Reforms.
My Oxford (course Book Is Using Ctype.h) . Recommend Some Book Following New Standards.

You Know I Once Told My Prof That Conio.h Is Non Standard . He Has Taught Us That Conio.h Has The Clrscr(); ,, While I Was Using It On Dev-cpp It Didnt Work , I Checked The Help Website , It Said That They Have Included A Reduced Version Not Including Clrscr();,
I Told Even This To My Prof . He Said That If U R Asked That Clrscr() Belongs To Which Header Then U Have To Write Conio.h . He Said That It Is Cbse Exam That We Are Preparing U For. We Dont Want U To Be Professionals.

I can understand ur problem...you'll find such teachers everywhere...you won't believe there are certain things which i have to use in my code to satisfy them...though they are completely wrong concepts....but they are stupid teachers...in my course they don't show us the papers to cross question them....so i need to write what they feel is right and so that my scores are right...but there is no problem if you know what is right and what is wrong...use them in ur professional life...
Why do u need to use <conio.h> anyways in ur code....it is meant for borland compilers...if u want to clear the screen use

system("cls");

though it non-portable code....works fine if u r working on windows...but i don't think you have any good reason to clear the screen.

hey i never suceeded in making dat pattern . check if it has a logical error.
