Problem type
Canadian Computing Competition: 2012 Stage 1, Junior #3

You have been asked to take a small icon that appears on the screen of a smart telephone and scale it up so it looks bigger on a regular computer screen.

The icon will be encoded as characters (x and *) in a 3 \times 3 grid as follows:

* *

Write a program that accepts a positive integer scaling factor and outputs the scaled icon. A scaling factor of k means that each character is replaced by a k \times k grid consisting only of that character.

Input Specification

The input will be a positive integer k such that k < 25.

Output Specification

The output will be 3k lines, which represent each individual line scaled by a factor of k and repeated k times. A line is scaled by a factor of k by replacing each character in the line with k copies of the character.

    Hi DMOJ users! Can someone kindly take a look at my program and tell me where I went wrong. I have tried debugging but haven't made any progress :(

    Much appreciated, kresteodymium :)

      Use lowercase 'x' instead of uppercase 'X'.

    My code works no problem in Visual Studios but in DMOJ I get IR(EOFError), could someone help explain the cause of the error? Thanks!

      The only input to this question is the integer k, the image you are scaling remains static, which is provide by the question

    It's in BrainF, sorry I chose to test my code in an online IDE I found after submission. It seemed to work, but I'm getting WA's for what seem to be correct. (It's saying text clipped but I don't see anything wrong)

    Script here (before you ask why I was coding in BrainF, I was bored and wanted to play around with it. -yes I know it's also limited to 1 digit)

      The xs are supposed to be lowercase.
