    I have done some of the code but need help with the rest of it.

    Coding Criteria:
    This programme needs to be able to compress a text file with several
    sentences, including punctuation.
    File must be compressed into a list of words and list of positions.
    Code should be able to take a compressed file and recreate the full text of
    the original text.

    This is as much as i have been able to do:

    #Compresses T2
    def compress():


    #Input stored as a variable.
    sentence = input("Please enter a sentence")
    #Sentence is split up into individual words.
    sentence = sentence.split(" ")
    print(sentence)
    #If there are any duplicates in the list they are removed.
    sent_list = list(set(sentence))
    #The new list is put back into the original order
    sent_list2 = sorted((sent_list),key = sent_list.index)
    print("These are the word that occur in your list:",sent_list2)

    #This recreates the code from the positions of the words in the list.
    for i in range (len(sent_list)):
    for x in range (len(sent_list2)):
    if sent_list[i] == sent_list2 [x]:
    print(x)

    #Writes code to a file
    file_ = open("sent_list.txt", "w")
    file_.write(str(sent_list))
    file_.write(str(sent_list2))
    file_.close()

    #T 3

    #Uncompreses T2
    def uncompress():
    file1 = open("sent_list.txt","r")
    print (file1.read())
    file1.close()
    #Menu is created so user can compress or decompress the file.
    menu=input("what would you like to do: 1: Compress 2: Decompress")
    menu=int(menu)
    if menu==1:
    compress()
    elif menu==2:
    uncompress()

    Some one please show me what to do next or give me some advice.

    Thank You

    JTran38 Have you managed task 3 yet? (Sorry I know how much you love computing but I'm really not good with python)

    is this task 2?
    I'm not doing this task, nor do I have a copy of it on me, but I believe the first part of the code is task 2, while the second part is task 3.
    CoffeeAndPolitics may be able to help to identify the tasks?

    If you kindly PM me, I'll be happy to have a look and try to help you out - Obviously, I can't give you my entire code as that would be plagiarism.

    Thanks Lemur14 for tagging me.
