Can you be a little more specific? Do you need a procedure that draws rectangles in textmode?

This question looks like homework... But nevermind.

Those procedures does not check X,Y.
The first (and simpler) procedure draws a filled rectangle.
The second procedure draws the outlines of the rectangle.

procedure WriteRectangle1(X,Y:integer);
  const
    Ch='$';
  var
    a,b:integer;
  begin;
    for a:=1 to X do begin;
      for b:=1 to Y do write(Ch);
      writeln;
    end;
  end;


procedure DrawRectangle2(X,Y:integer);
  const
    Ch='$';
  var
    a,b:integer;
  begin;
    for b:=1 to Y do write(Ch);
    writeln;
    for a:=1 to X do begin;
      write(Ch);
      for b:=1 to (Y-2) do write(' ');
      writeln(Ch);
    end;
    for b:=1 to Y do write(Ch);
    writeln;
  end;
