tha pythonwin way: you can write your own input function in c/c++ that gets 
the input from a message box. it should return Python string. (i assume 
you've found out how to write python funcs in c/c++, i.e. like those for in 
a module)
then you can replace the builtin function raw_input with your function 
(assign it to __builtin__.raw_input). take a look at the python win sources 
on how to do this in python.
