This is quite a beginner question. I recently started Python in my computer science class and decided to start practicing using Python before we go into the detail. I have installed PyDev into Eclipse because I have used Eclipse previously for Android and Java programming. I have created a module inside of a python projected and have run it but I do not know how to do any inputs. For example creating a variable x with the value of 5 then inputting x in a console and receiving 5.

I'm very used to Java simply running the code and allowing any inputs unless the code couldn't compile, but for Python all I get is terminated as soon as it's run.

I apologize if this is very obvious but I have been looking around for the simple answer but could not find it.
