Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Shopping List Take Three

How do I share my workspace code to get help?

I wanna ask where I went wrong on this pretty long bit of code written in workspaces making up the shopping_list_3.py file. Is there a way for me to attach the work to a question so people can actually see the code to help me out and see the error codes popping up? If so that would be great to know.

import os Shopping_list = []

def clear_screen(): os.system("cls" if os.name == "int" else "clear") def show_help(): clear_screen() print("\nSeparate each item with comma.") print("Type DONE to quit, SHOW to see the current list, and HELP to get this message.") def add_to_list(item): show_list() if len(shopping_list): position = input ("where should I add {}?\n" "press enter to add to the end of the list\n" "> ".format(item)) else: postion = 0 try: postion = abs(int(position)) except valueError: position = none if position is not none: shopping_list.insert(position-1, item)
else: shopping_list,append(new_item) show_list() def show_list(): clear_screen()

print("here's your list:")

index = 1
for item in Shopping_list:
    print("{}. {}" .format(index,item))
    index += 1

print("-"+10)

show_help()

while True: new_item = input("> ")

if new_item.upper() == 'DONE' or new_item.upper() == 'quit':
    break
elif new_item.upper() == 'HELP':
    show_help()
    continue
elif new_item.upper() == 'SHOW':
    show_list()
    continue
else:
     add_to_list(new_item)

show_list()
