BJP3 Exercise 3.4: printSquare

Added by: Roy McElmurry on 2013/04/01

Write a method called printSquare that takes in two integer parameters, a min and a max, and prints the numbers in the range from min to max inclusive in a square pattern. The square pattern is easier to understand by example than by explanation, so take a look at the sample method calls and their resulting console output in the table below.

Each line of the square consists of a circular sequence of increasing integers between min and max. Each line prints a different permutation of this sequence. The first line begins with min, the second line begins with min + 1, and so on. When the sequence in any line reaches max, it wraps around back to min.

You may assume the caller of the method will pass a min and a max parameter such that min is less than or equal to max.

Call printSquare(1, 5); printSquare(3, 9); printSquare(0, 3); printSquare(5, 5);
