Should I have to input a name twice?


#1

When testing is it normal to have to type my input twice? If I input a name once and hit enter it will drop to the next line and I either type it again or hit enter which comes up with empty. Is there a way to make accept the input the first time. many thanks!

print 'Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!'

Start coding here!

raw_input("Enter a word:")
original = raw_input()
if len(original) >0 and original.isalpha():
print original
else:
print "empty"


#2

Yes. Simply remove the first raw_imput.
