[Help Needed] Converting C++ program into Mathematica Function

i've tried for quite some time but am still stuck at it.

the C++ program is as follows:

int Current_line, Num_Of_Star, Num_Space;
int N, Num_Star_Current_line,m;
printf("\n How many Lines:");
for(Current_line = 1; Current_line <= N; Current_line=Current_line+1)

Num_Space = N -Current_line; 
for(m =1; m <= Num_Space;m = m+1)
printf(" ");

Num_Star_Current_line = Current_line * 2 -1; 
for(Num_Of_Star =1; Num_Of_Star <= Num_Star_Current_line; Num_Of_Star= Num_Of_Star + 1)


The Mathematica function i've tried to write is as follows:

printstars := Block[{n, i, space1, star1},
n = Input["Enter the number of lines:"];
For[i = 1, i ¡<= n, i++,
(space1 = n - i; star1 = i 2 - 1);
Do[Print[" "], {space1}];
Do[Print["*"], {star1}];


However, Mathematica gives output for each * on a new line. I've tried to use the function "StringJoin" but still can't seem to make it work.

Anyone has suggestions? Your help will be greatly appreciated.
