How to print in the new line?

I have written below script for the output:

Code:
1234
123
12
1


Code:
" {
 read x
 y=$x
 i=1
 while [ $i -le $x ]
 do
 j=1
 while [ $j -le $y ]
 do
 if [ $i == 1 ]
 then
 print -n $j
 fi
 j=`expr $j + 1`
 done
 i=`expr $i + 1`
 y=`expr $y - 1`
 done
 }"

However, I am getting o/p horizontally: 1234123121

Can anyone please help?

Using awk
Code:
echo "4" | awk '{for (j=$0;j>=1;j--) {for (i=1;i<=j;i++) printf i; print ""}}'
1234
123
12

Code:
{
   read x
   y=$x
   i=1
   while [ $i -le $x ]
   do
      j=1
      while [ $j -le $y ]
      do
         echo -n $j
         j=`expr $j + 1`
      done
      echo
      i=`expr $i + 1`
      y=`expr $y - 1`
   done
}

I have replaced the prints with echos and indented for reading purposes. YOu had an if construct which I assume you put in for debugging purposes.

Shell should take input from the user instead of assuming it to be "4"

I should have quoted that I am working in KORN shell. I don't know how much implications it has on the syntax, but here is the O/P of your amended script.

Code:
3
-n 1
-n 2
-n 3

-n 1
-n 2

-n 1


Plz advise !

It works for ksh93 on Linux for me. Try putting the prints back in instead of the echos. What system are you running this on?
