New submission from Joshua Logan <dear.jay.logan at gmail.com>:

Hello,

It is mentioned in the documentation for input() ( http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/functions.html#input ) that the newline is stripped from the end of the returned string. However, on Windows, it used to trim '\r\n'. Now it no longer trims '\r'.

See output below:

C:\>python
Python 3.2 (r32:88445, Feb 20 2011, 21:29:02) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

>>> name = input("What's your name? ")
What's your name? Josh
>>> print(name)
Josh
>>> print(list(name))
['J', 'o', 's', 'h', '\r']
