EOF stands for End Of File. Well, technically it is not an error, rather an exception. This exception is raised when one of the built-in functions, most commonly input() returns End-Of-File (EOF) without reading any data.
EOF error is raised in Python in some specific scenarios:
Sometimes all program tries to do is to fetch something and modify it. But when it is unable to fetch, it will raise this exception.
When the input() function is interrupted in both Python 2.7 and Python 3.6+, or when the input() reaches the end of a file unexpectedly in Python 2.7.
The best practice to avoid EOF in python while coding on any platform is to catch the exception, and we don’t need to perform any action so, we just pass the exception using the keyword “pass” in the “except” block.
