Problem 44063. Make a rainbow matrix (follow-up to checkerboard matrix)

Created by Jihye Sofia Seo in Community

Given an integer n, make an n-by-n matrix as shown below. The a(1,1) should be 0. As we move away from the top-left, the number increase by 1, until we hit a diagonal, where all the elements are (n-1) along the diagonal. After passing diagonal, the number increases by 1 each time.
