Way to Enter Multiple Values With Raw_Input


Allows multiple entries using raw_input.

I often have to enter multiple items in my Python programs. I desired an easier way than using a loop(s). Today I discovered a way, and with a few mods made it happen.

    v_List = []
    v_Stop = "" # Defines the iter()'s sentinel which stops the inter() when this string is seen
    for i in iter(lambda: raw_input("Enter a value or [ENTER] to end: "), v_Stop): ## Using "lambda" bypasses need for "raw_input" to be "callable."
        print("{}".format(i)) ## Use if wish to view values as entered.
        v_List.append(str(i)) ## All entries in Str type unless changed to Int().
