In the first case, your do-loop terminates prematurely, and you have code following it that fixes it. In the second case, your do-loop terminates prematurely, and you don't have code following it that fixes it.

IMO, neither case is optimal. Maybe it would be better to fix the do-loop.

Another suggestion, instead of generating the output string backwards -- requiring the for-loop to reverse it back -- maybe it would be better to generate it in a forward direction. Meaning, instead of this...



How about this...

As mentioned, the code outside of the loop is needed because your loop terminated prematurely. It does one more iteration of the loop.

My suggestion is to get rid of that code, and fix the do-loop so that it doesn't terminate prematurely.

Dear Sir,

Can you give some light on fix the do-loop so that it doesn't terminate prematurely.

I showed you the fix, in my first response (not tested, of course).
