Huh? I'm not sure I get what you are asking when you say how do you use w,a,s,d... What are you trying to use them for? What is your program? What are you having trouble with?

Need more information then what you gave.

Again we need more information, what Libraries are you using to make your game? SFML? DirectX? OpenGL? Allegro? Are you on windows or *nix?
@Zereo

Try this out. If you can't get it to compile, you could try downloading Microsoft Visual Studio Express, at http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/products/visual-studio-express-products ( it's FREE ).

Sorry. My response should have been directed to ibranext, not you. I made a small error in putting the wrong name.

@ibranext

My above program and response is directed to you..
