Some time ago I've been showing my computer program to my teacher. Suddenly he began to laugh pointing at 'Please enter your name: ' statement. I tried to figure out what was wrong. He said it's better to use input instead of enter and the sentence sounds funny otherwise.
Here they're defining the word input using the word enter.
To enter data into the computer.
What's better to use in such sentences as 'Please (input/enter) your name: ' - input or enter?
