^+D does not work with PyCharm it seems, I am having the same problem now. It does not work in the command prompt either, when running "python diary.py". I've discovered however that CTRL+Z works in the command prompt. I'm using PyCharm on Windows 10

I also had the same EOF error. I'm using PyCharm (Community Edition for Mac) for learning:

Traceback (most recent call last): Save entry? [Y]/n File "/Users/Documents/Code/Learning Python/dairy.py", line 67, in <module> menu_loop() File "/Users/Documents/Code/Learning Python/dairy.py", line 37, in menu_loop menuchoice File "/Users/Documents/Code/Learning Python/dairy.py", line 46, in add_entry if input('Save entry? [Y]/n ').lower() != 'n': EOFError: EOF when reading a line Process finished with exit code 1

So I've just changed the add_entry() to get multiple line entry, as stdin is the topic of the course:

def add_entry():
    """Add an entry."""
    entry = ""
    print("Log you idea, print 'done' to finish.")
    while True:
        data = input('> ')
        if data.lower() != 'done':
            entry += data + "\n"
    # data = sys.stdin.read().strip()

    if entry:
        if input('Save entry? [Y]/n ').lower() != 'n':
            print("Your entry wasn't save")

And now it works well and helps me keep learning.

Dude, you've saved me! Mega-thanx!!! Also occurred similar issue - Entry couldn't be saved. And I wanted to rewrite saving functional of this script, but decided to search for some solution. So, your code allowed me to keep being a bit lazy. Thanx again - it does work!
