While working on Qprompt (a Python CLI based user input libary), I wanted to write some tests to check for regressions. The following lambda function allows stdin to be programmatically set:

import StringIO, sys
sys.stdin = StringIO.StringIO()
setinput = lambda x: [sys.stdin.truncate(0), sys.stdin.write(x),]

The following is an example test scenario that checks the ask_int() function:

result = ask_int()
print result        # 42
print type(result)  # <type 'int'>
