You could try the python-tutor list, it tends to give more focused 
answers to newbie questions than this group, which is pretty 
newbie-friendly but does have a tendency to veer widely from the 
original question.

raw_input() prompts to stdout and reads from stdin. print outputs to stdout:

In [53]: print raw_input('What is your name? ')
What is your name? Kent

or import sys and use sys.stdin and sys.stdout.
