In this article, I will explain to you how to take input in python. You might be familiar with the two commands — python input and python code. Both of these commands are used for input in the python programming language. We can also say that these are used for getting some information from our computer.

In Python, an application will get two separate functions to accept input from the user. One is read-string and another one is write-string. The read-string function is used to read a string from the user and convert it to Unicode string. The write-string function is used to write a Unicode string to a string. It can be used when the value does not fit into the output or it can be a validation. In other words, it can be a validation or a converter.

In Python, a function can return different results depending on different situations. In Python, the keyword is always ‘result’ and the variable name is ‘result’. In our example above, if we want to perform some operation on a list, we need to specify a list and then return a result. For example, if we want to check whether user inputs are valid, we can do the following.

Python also provides us with a way to get input from a user’s text. We can simply use one command to get all the text from a text input into a variable. We can then do any operation we want over this text. An example would be a find command or an auto responder.

If we want to get input from a user, but not change anything else, we can use a format function. This function takes a string and converts it to a variable. If for example, we want to get all the email addresses from a database, we can pass the list of names as an argument to the format function. It will then return all the email addresses that were passed as a string.

Finally, we are going to cover the third part of learning how to take input in python, which is formatting. In Python, format functions are used to turn a string into a code. This code is then used by the application we are working in Python. An example would be an email format specifier.
