     Dynamically draws hut like (or Street sign like) shapes by dragging the mouse in 4 different directions (as indicated by the red arrows in the screen shot). Updated to make filled shapes (I realized that the shape was not filling initially, as the pointiest vertex had a small gap due to XORing so I placed a little pset point at that spot). Nice to see some older names in new uploads.Welcome back all. Enjoy and Merry Christmas.

Ah yes you are correct (irregular pentagon). I thought I'd use simple terms like "hut" and "street sign" for real life connections to the shape. Was suffering from a lack of sleep, as well. I tend to get the silent downloaders, so it is nice to get some feedback. Thanks Paul.
