Python – How to read from stdin


I'm trying to do some of the code golf challenges, but they all require the input to be taken from stdin. How do I get that in Python?

Best Solution

You could use the fileinput module:

import fileinput

for line in fileinput.input():

fileinput will loop through all the lines in the input specified as file names given in command-line arguments, or the standard input if no arguments are provided.

Note: line will contain a trailing newline; to remove it use line.rstrip()
