The script is a python script. You need a python interpreter for that. Get Python 2.7 interpreter from python.org. Open command prompt run the following command

> Python code.py >> dict.txt

note: the above assumes that path to your python installation has been setup and the "code.py" is in the current directory.

This will produce a file named "dict.txt" that will contain all possible decodes of the morse code that are of nine characters. You can give that file to any zip cracking program and can crack the zip using dictionary attack.

i did the steps you mentionad above vianiac, but the strange thing is that it's creating the list with the beginning character as 'k' instead of the usual 'a', also it's ending prematurely at something from 'y'. hope u fix this soon and reply so that i get to know something new.. :)

Its not a bug to fix. The script is not generating the list of all possible 9 character string. Instead, it is generating all possible decoded string for the morse code that is nine character long.

For example, consider a morse code without space be:-

"..."

Now the possible decodes can be
eee (. . .)
ei (. ..), ie (.. .)
s (...)

If I say that the string is of 2 characters before encrypting than the only possible values in the list can be "ei" and "ie".

I hope this will make things clear.
