controlling bot using pc keyboard

i am beginner and want to make project on arduino. the project is to control a bot by pressing keys on keyboard. when i press 'w' the bot will move forward and similarly another instructions.can any one suggest to proceed with programming or any library which capture key strokes? thanks in advance.

What's it going to be on a lead or a R/C interface?
I think that that "Wiring" app is what you're looking for.

its going to be lead one.
i need interfacing between bot and pc . thanks for reply :slight_smile:
