What version of Python are you using?
Python 2.x has the raw_input() function, but that was done away with in
Python 3.x.
In Python 3.x your code would be:

var = input("Enter something: ")
print ("you entered ", var)

Note the () in the print function.
this happens when you have Python run your program from a command line.
You are getting a version 3 Python interpreter.
