write a c++ program to display the following pattern:
a b
a b c

Okay. What do you have so far? Do you know how to use for loops? Do you know how to use a char vareiable?

ok here is the program :)

Imports System.IO

Public Class Form1

    'word wrap. It does this by parsing each line into blank delimited tokens and   
    'calculating the pront position of each token. If the current token will not fit
    'on the current line then a new line is started. Note that this sub will not    
    'handle a line with no blanks that is wider than the page printable width.

lol are you guys serious,
This is not Homework solve my problem, or please do my lazy work for me site.

the proplem is not even clear,
if you wanna see what this app might look like I just spent a useless 10 minutes at most wasting my time to show something simillar to what is needed here,

here is the code and the result next to follow and please if you post a negative flag try to fix it up please:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main()
    for (char c = 'a'; c<='z'; c++) {
        for (char x = 'a'; x<=c; x++) {
            cout << x << " ";
        cout << endl;

    return 0;

the result is as this follow:
a b
a b c
a b c d
a b c d e
a b c d e f
a b c d e f g
a b c d e f g h
a b c d e f g h i
a b c d e f g h i j
a b c d e f g h i j k
a b c d e f g h i j k l
a b c d e f g h i j k l m
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

commented: lol, are you serious?! system("pause")? -3
commented: Spoon feeding! Not cool. -1

So before you even find out if this is homework or not you just decide to do the assignment for them? What is that going to teach them?

As a question on your code why are you using system("pause")? Wouldnt cin.get() work just as well and be portable and safe?

hey tell me "system()" is in which header file? I mean to say which header file I have to include for using "system()".

hey tell me "system()" is in which header file?

#include <cstdlib>
