> docs of how to get python to prompt the user to input a string -
>>> response = raw_input("Please enter a string: ")
Please enter a string: OK, this is a string.
>>> print response
OK, this is a string.
raw_input() and its more-dangerous friend input() are described in the
Library Reference Manual, in the section on builtin functions.
