terminating input() function after specified time

Hi there,

I need to get user input (via keyboard) but if the user does not respond within a certain time interval (i.e. 3sec), the program needs to abort the user input function and move on to the next stage of the program.

I have been trying to use the 'input()' function but there doesn't seem a way to exit from the function if no user input has been supplied. I have tried using the timer object but still run into the same problem.

Any ideas? Its probably very simple but the solution is not presenting itself to me!
