I should add that calling raw_input() gives the following error:

File "Drive:Users:louispecora:Code:python:test_folder:junk.py"; Line 
12:  EOFError: EOF when reading a line

Not sure what that tells you, but it seems to be how TextWrangler is 
dealing with stdin.  Almost sounds like it is expecting input to be 
right there when called and seeing none, just sees an  EOF.  Oh, well.
