Name_Error on Switching it Up? 'a' is not defined... using terminal on Ubuntu.
When I run diary.py in terminal on Ubuntu I get a Name_Error when I type a or v. If I put them inside quotes I don't get the error?
I tried to get around this by putting str() around the input() but that didnt work.
Here is the terminal output:
office@Office-PC:~/Desktop/Database example$ python diary.py Enter 'q' to quit. a Add an entry v View previous entries Action: a Traceback (most recent call last): File "diary.py", line 51, in <module> menu_loop() File "diary.py", line 30, in menu_loop choice = str(input('Action: ').lower().strip()) File "<string>", line 1, in <module> NameError: name 'a' is not defined office@Office-PC:~/Desktop/Database example$

Guessing you're on Python 2.7 instead of 3.4 like we use for everything at Treehouse. You'll need to use
raw_input() instead of
