Hi All,

is there a way i can override raw_input or input function.

I tried with below code but getting error

import sys
class xyz(object):
    def readline(self):
        print 'from fn readline',var

sys.stdin = xyz

>>> raw_input('hi:')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#12>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: unbound method readline() must be called with xyz instance as
first argument (got nothing instead)

overriding sys.stdout is working fine.
