Function raw_input returns a string. Technically, raw_input reads a line of input from standard input (sys.stdin) and returns a string. If a prompt string is supplied, it is first printed to standard output (sys.stdout). Trailing newlines are stripped. If an EOF is read, an EOFError is raised.

Example:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. s = raw_input("What is your name?")
  2. print "Your name is %s." % (s)
