I'm really sorry to all that replied... In fact I literally traduced a
concept from italian and the term precompiled was not so clear...
What I mean is this: I wanna that raw_input (or other modules) ask to
the user the data, but some data inserted is already present, to the
user can cancel it with the BACKSPACE key.
Examples below (the "_" is the initial cursor position).
>>> raw_input("Insert the directory to work: ")
Insert the directory to work: _
What I need is:
>>> XXX_raw_input("Insert the directory to work: ", default="/home/john/")
Insert the directory to work: /home/john_
In the second example a user can cancel the text "/home/john".
I hope this time is more clear, sorry again.
