it should still fix some issue Here is a possible solution, it may be really useful for future visitors that are also suffering with this problem like me. Which is;
code :
def text1(word,x,y):
    font = pygame.font.SysFont(None, 25)
    text = font.render("{}".format(word), True, RED)
    return screen.blit(text,(x,y))
def inpt():
    text1("Please enter your name: ",300,400) #example asking name
    done = True
    while done:
        for event in pygame.event.get():
            if event.type==pygame.QUIT:
            if event.type == pygame.KEYDOWN:
                if event.key == pygame.K_a:
                if event.key == pygame.K_b:
                if event.key == pygame.K_c:
                if event.key == pygame.K_d:
                if event.key == pygame.K_RETURN:
    return text1(word,700,30)
def game_intro():

while intro:
    for event in pygame.event.get():
        if event.type==pygame.QUIT:
        if event.type==pygame.KEYDOWN:
            if event.key==pygame.K_RETURN:
    inpt() #Here we are calling our function

Save variable value in a file by user input

Save variable value in a file by user input

I hope this helps . Basically, manually overwriting config file sounds like a trivial task using pure Lua.
Something like this (initial write, do whatever changes to default or current config):
code :
local function flush_config_to_file(configTable, configFile)
    local tmpFileHandle
    local configFileLines = {}

    --start file with array declaration
    table.insert(configFileLines, "local config = {")

    --iterate default configs and put string analogical lines into table:
    for key, value in pairs(defaultConfig) do
        table.insert(configFileLines, "\t[\"key\"] = " .. tostring(value) .. ",")

    --closing array:
    table.insert(configFileLines, "}")

    --returning table of config values:
    table.insert("return config")

    tmpFileHandle = io.open(configFile, "w")

    --concat lines with \n separator and write those to file:
    tmpFileHandle:write(table.concat(configFileLines, "\n"))

local function create_initial_config_file(configFile)
    local defaultConfig = 
        "first_run" = true,
        "maxMP" = nil,
        "maxHP" = nil

        -- etc etc etc

    flush_config_to_file(defaultConfig, configFile)

local function get_config_from_module(configModule)
    local tmpConfigTable

    package.loaded[configModule] = nil
    tmpConfigTable = require(configModule)

    return tmpConfigTable
local configModule = "config_file"
local configFile = configModule .. ".lua"
local tmpConfig = nil


-- Wall of text and logics I do not care about

-- Then user requires some configuration from file (module):
tmpConfig = getConfigFromModule(configModule)

-- User interaction or whatever which updates config:
tmpConfig.maxHP = io.read()
tmpConfig.first_run = false
-- etc etc 

-- Rewrite config file with updated values:
flush_config_to_file(tmpConfig, configFile)
local config = {
    ["first_run"] = true,
    ["maxMP"] = nil,
    ["maxHP"] = nil,

return config

around this issue This problem was caused because I installed my Python stack using Anaconda, but then installed pygame using the build+install instructions for Ubuntu on pygame's documentation page.
This caused there to be conflicting libraries of libpng, I think, somewhere, somehow.

How to save user's input in variable using delegate?

How to save user's input in variable using delegate?

this will help I think the way to go is to use the UITableViewDelegate method didSelectRowAtindexPath in the WordTableViewController (if that's the class with your table view).
A gestureRecognizer does not seem like something you want in your tableViewController as it has nice build in delegate methods to register user presses. Therefore, replace your viewDictionary(_:) function with the following:
code :
override func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) {
    performSegue(withIdentifier: "viewDictionary", sender: indexPath)

override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
    // I just made this identifier up, but create one yourself in the storyboard
    if segue.identifier == "viewDictionary" {
       // Define your vc
       let libController = segue.destination as! UIReferenceLibraryViewController

       // Define indexPath
       let indexPath = sender as! IndexPath

       // Set value in destination vc
       libController.engWord = yourArrayOfEngWords[indexPath.row]       
class UIReferenceLibraryViewController(){
     var engWord: String = ""

     // Rest your class properties and functions here...
Saving user input as a variable in pygame

I wish did fix the issue. I am working on a game in which the user inputs an amount of money they want to bet and then if they win/lose, the purse is updated. After they input the amount they want to take, Pygame is not recognizing it as a variable and will not continue. Message I get is
code :
amount = raw_input('Please enter a number: ')
amount = raw_input('...')
stake = 0
  stake = int(amount)
except Exception:  # this is raised if the input is invalid i.e. not numeric
  pass  # does nothing
