       for word in query: 
         docs = set(index[word]) 
         for doc in docs: 
           number_of_matched_words [doc] ++ 
       for doc in matches:

Is this psuedo-code that you're supposed to translate into Python?

yes....its v similar to python. i am not sure however what matches exactly contains.....index is a dictionary which has words as keys and document numbers that contain words as the values...ie index = {tracl:["num1","num2","num3"...],field:[.....],...} ... i have been given a test list from which i have to take all words and compare with the index and find out documents which contain the words

Maybe you should give your thread a more meaningful title.
