  1. Write a routine to draw a rectangle on the screen.
  2. Make it so that you can control the position of the rectangle with the arrow keys and the size of the rectangle with the WASD keys. For info on querying keyboard input for alphanumeric keys, see the section "Virtual Key Codes" on this page.

The solution is given in a this video.
