In Python and many other programming languages you can get user input. Do not worry, you do not need to write a keyboard driver. In Python the input() function will ask keyboard input from the user.
The input function prompts text if a parameter is given. The functions reads input from the keyboard, converts it to a string and removes the newline (Enter).
Type and experiment with the script below (save as key.py)
#!/usr/bin/env python3 name = input('What is your name? ') print('Hello ' + name) job = input('What is your job? ') print('Your job is ' + job) num = input('Give me a number? ') print('You said: ' + str(num))
