I am making a program that analyzes text from a user
After inputting several line and using the keyword "DONE", the program will ask for one of 8 possible options which is the menu() function where the user will enter the number. How would i be able to run my program using main() function to where the user will be able to enter a choice have the text analyzed according to my functions and then be prompted again until they choose to quit the program. Also a choice of numbers under 1 or greater than 8 must not work for the menu. I know its alot but im stuck!
#DONE indicates the end of input def input(): line = "" dl =  while line != "DONE": line = raw_input("") if (line != "DONE"): nl = "" for char in line: if char.isalpha(): nl += char else: nl += " " ll = nl.split() dl.append(ll) return dl def long(): dl = input() zz =  for line in dl: for word in line: zz.append(word) print max(zz, key=len) def short(): dl = input() zz =  for line in dl: for word in line: zz.append(word) print min(zz, key=len) def common(): dl = input() zz =  for line in dl: for word in line: zz.append(word) distinct_words =  counter =  for word in zz: if word not in distinct_words: distinct_words.append(word) counter.append(1) else: index = distinct_words.index(word) counter[index] += 1 print distinct_words print counter return 0 def fL(): dl = input() single_list =  for i in range (0,len(dl)): single_list = single_list + dl[i] char_list =  for word in single_list: char_list.append(str(word) print char_list def last(): dl = input() single_list =  for line in dl: single_list.append((line[-1])) print single_list def total(): dl = input() zz =  for line in dl: for word in line: zz.append(word) wordcount = len(zz) print wordcount def trd(): dl = input() zz =  for line in dl: for word in line: zz.append(word) twords = zz[2::3] print twords def quit_program(): print "END" quit() def menu(): print print "Choose an option" print "1.
