Need help with these scripts in nano...

So I am trying to write 3 different scripts using nano. Having some trouble with each.

The first one is prompting for the person's information, and I would like to store that information in a new text file. I have most of it complete. The only problem I have here is that I do not know the code to send all of the information to the new text file.

The second one I want to remove all HTML tags from a document, as well as duplicate lines.

The third script I have a list of states, their land area and population. I need it to ask the person if they would like to have a new file sorted alphabetically by state name, by land area or by population. They can choose 1, 2, or 3. Depending on what they choose, I need to output their choice to a new text file.

I sort of have a grasp on what to do for these scripts but I need a little help on each one. Any help would be appreciated.
