Serhiy Storchaka added the comment: If stdin and stdout are attached to a terminal, input() uses the readline library (if it is available) for displaying the prompt and reading user input. This is the limitation of the readline library and Python C API that this works with null-terminated C strings. You also can't enter the null character.
UnicodeEncodingError is raised if the prompt contains characters not encodable with the stdout encoding. Consider ValueError raised if the prompt contains the null character as similar restriction. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue30431> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
