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.

    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.
