Encrypt a string by repeating i-th character i times

Given a string str, the task is to encrypt the string with the given encryption algorithm.
The 1st character of the string will be repeated once in the encrypted string, the 2nd character will be repeated twice, …, nth character will be repeated n times.
For example, str = “abcd” will be encrypted as “abbcccdddd”.

Examples:

Input: str = “geeks”
Output: geeeeekkkksssss

Input: str = “abcd”
Output: abbcccdddd

Approach: Initialize cnt = 1 and start traversing the string character by character. Repeat the current character cnt number of times then update cnt = cnt + 1 and get to the next character. Repeat these steps for every character of the string.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

    string str = "geeks";
    int n = str.length();
    cout << encryptString(str, n);
  
    return 0;
