This looks like homework, so I'm just going to give a broad hint.

Figure out a file format (one per line, or pickled, or whatever), then
write one program that writes that format and another that reads it.
The open() built-in function will open files for reading or writing,
so that's a good place to start.

Get as far as you can on your own, and if you get stuck, ask the list
for more specific help. Good luck!
