Program to print a rectangle pattern

Given height h and width w, print a rectangular pattern as shown in example below.

Examples:

Input : h = 4, w = 5
Output : @@@@@
         @   @
         @   @
         @@@@@

Input : h = 7, w = 9
Output : @@@@@@@@
         @      @
         @      @
         @      @
         @      @
         @      @
         @@@@@@@@

The idea is to run two loops. One for number of rows to be printed and other for number of columns. Print a ‘@’ only when current row is first or last. OR current column is first or last.
