input() vs sys.stdin.read()

0 votes
import sys
s1 = input()
s2 = sys.stdin.read(1)

#type "s" for example

s1 == "s" #False
s2 == "s" #True

How can I make input() to work properly? I tried to encode/decode s1, but it doesn't work.

If you're on Windows, you'll notice that the result of input() when you type an 's' and Enter is "s\r". Strip all trailing whitespace from the result and you'll be fine.
