I want to get a string from a user, and then to manipulate it.
testVar = input("Ask user for something.")
Is there a way for testVar to be a string without me having the user type his response in quotes? i.e. “Hello” vs. Hello
If the user types in Hello, I get the following error:
NameError: name ‘Hello’ is not defined
raw_input() instead of
testVar = raw_input("Ask user for something.")
input() actually evaluates the input as Python code. I suggest to never use it.
raw_input() returns the verbatim string entered by the user.
