Thread: Python question

  1. #1

    Default Python question

    I am trying to write a program in python, of which I am pretty new. The program is supposed to ask the user for a list of names that will be coming from a spreadsheet, there are multiple names per cell separated by commas. After the names are entered the program will format them for use in other programs. The problem I am having is that when you copy and paste the cells that you want, it is like it is pasting it then automatically entering the data, then it somehow is pasting each line to the regular terminal prompt and automatically entering it.

    This is what I have done so far:

    names = raw_input('Shoot me some names partner: ')

    print 'What do you want to do?'
    print '1 - format names for program 1'
    print '2 - format names for program 2'

    first_act = raw_input('Enter choice: ')

    print names
    print first_act

    Now when I run this and input the dummy names I put into a google doc spreadsheet to test, as soon as I hit shift+ctl+v, without hitting enter I get this:

    seth@linux-1337:~> python pythonproj/names.py
    Shoot me some names partner: abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnopWhat do you want to do?
    1 - format names for program 1
    2 - format names for program 2
    Enter choice: abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    seth@linux-1337:~> abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    If 'abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    seth@linux-1337:~> abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop
    If 'abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop

    seth@linux-1337:~> abcd,efg,hijkl,mnop


    Any idea what could be causing this and what I can to to change it? This is python 2.7, and I am using openSUSE 11.4.

    did you notice our forum named Forum: "Programming/Scripting - Questions
    about programming, bash scripts, perl, php, cron jobs, ruby, python,
    etc." at http://tinyurl.com/5v695w4

    probably more "programmers" hanging out there than here..

    Actually no I didn't, I didn't even think to look in development for some reason. I was a bit frustrated at the time and not thinking completely clearly.

    i understand! i have tried programming (but not very much--i get a quick
    headache)..

    so, you might keep the full range of forums in mind (or just look
    through the full list) the next time you seek aid (i mean, you see how
    much programming help you got in this one!)

    hope you got it sorted out..
