# Mario

## World 1-1

Toward the beginning of World 1-1 in Nintendoās Super Mario Brothers, Mario must hop over adjacent pyramids of blocks, per the below.

Letās recreate those pyramids in C, albeit in text, using hashes (`#`) for bricks, a la the below. Each hash is a bit taller than it is wide, so the pyramids themselves are also be taller than they are wide.

``````   #  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####
``````

The program weāll write will be called `mario`. And letās allow the user to decide just how tall the pyramids should be by first prompting them for a positive integer between, say, 1 and 8, inclusive.

Hereās how the program might work if the user inputs `8` when prompted:

``````\$ ./mario
Height: 8
#  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####
#####  #####
######  ######
#######  #######
########  ########

``````

Hereās how the program might work if the user inputs `4` when prompted:

``````\$ ./mario
Height: 4
#  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####
``````

Hereās how the program might work if the user inputs `2` when prompted:

``````\$ ./mario
Height: 2
#  #
##  ##
``````

And hereās how the program might work if the user inputs `1` when prompted:

``````\$ ./mario
Height: 1
#  #
``````

If the user doesnāt, in fact, input a positive integer between 1 and 8, inclusive, when prompted, the program should re-prompt the user until they cooperate:

``````\$ ./mario
Height: -1
Height: 0
Height: 42
Height: 50
Height: 4
#  #
##  ##
###  ###
####  ####
``````

Notice that width of the āgapā between adjacent pyramids is equal to the width of two hashes, irrespective of the pyramidsā heights.

Create a new directory called `mario` inside of your `pset1` directory by executing

``````~/ \$ mkdir ~/pset1/mario
``````

Create a new file called `mario.c` inside your `mario` directory. Modify `mario.c` in such a way that it implements this program as described!

### How to Test Your Code

Does your code work as prescribed when you input

• `-1` (or other negative numbers)?
• `0`?
• `1` through `8`?
• `9` or other positive numbers?
• letters or words?
• no input at all, when you only hit Enter?

You can also execute the below to evaluate the correctness of your code using `check50`. But be sure to compile and test it yourself as well!

``````

Execute the below to evaluate the style of your code using `style50`.

``````style50 mario.c
``````
