The tty module provides functions for putting a TTY into cbreak and raw modes on UNIX systems. Raw mode forces a process to receive every character on a TTY with no interpretation by the system.

Changes the mode of the file descriptor fd to raw mode. when specifies when the change occurs and is termios.TCSANOW, termios.TCSADRAIN, or termios.TCSAFLUSH (the default). Refer to the termios module for more description of these constants.
