I'm not quite sure what you mean by that. it was on that pastebin link. I'll post it again here though. it's no longer than half a page. 

x = 0
y = 0
quitCommand = 0

print "Welcome to the World of Textcraft!"
print "----------------------------------"
print ""

while quitCommand != int(5):
    print "You are currently at (" + str(x) + ", " + str(y) + ")"
    print "Enter a command (1 = North, 2 = East, 3 = South, 4 = West, 5 = Exit):"
    if int(raw_input()) == 1:
            print "Moving north"
            y = y + 1
    elif int(raw_input()) == 2:
            print "Moving east"
            x = x + 1
    elif int(raw_input()) == 3:
            print "Moving south"
            y = y - 1
    elif int(raw_input()) == 4:
            print "Moving west"
            x = x - 1
    elif int(raw_input()) == 5:
            print "Dost thou leave so soon? Fare thee well!"
            quitCommand = 5
    else:
            print "I find your lack of reading comprehension skills disturbing."
