void raw_input([variable])
ident           variable


Accepts data entered into the currently active field by the user. It does not validate the data and the data is not moved to the field. Can be used anywhere on the screen.
variable (optional) specifies the variable in which to put the user data. The variable must be a char/string and at least as large as the field. If no variable is specified, the application waits for an active key press.
If the input field resides on a page that isn't the active page, the active page is changed.
