input from REPL console to FiPy

  • I have one of these in my test program - not in a loop

    msg=input('Enter message -=> ')

    When I run the program I get

    Enter message -=> 
    Enter message -=> Enter message -=> 
    Enter message -=> abcdef

    So what happened was that I got 4 prompts. Only the last one blocked waiting for me to enter "abcdef".

    This is not a huge issue because I can ignore the empty strings that come back from the first 3 prompts. It's untidy though and there will be cases where a null string is a valid answer.

  • Hi,
    Thanks for noticing! I can indeed reproduce the issue and will add it to the bug log
