I want the program to paus, and wait until you press any key to continue, but raw_input() is going away, and input() is replacing it. So I have
var = input("Press enter to continue") and it waits until I press enter, but then it fails with SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while Parsing.
This works OK on a system with python 3, but this is linux pythin 2.6 I hate to have to code in raw_input() since it is going away.
try: input= raw_input except NameError: pass
raw_input exists, it will be used for input. If it doesn't exist,
input still exists.
