Write a program to open the file romeo.txt and read it line by line. For
each line, split the line into a list of words using the split function. For
each word, check to see if the word is already in a list. If the word is
not in the list, add it to the list. When the program completes, sort
and print the resulting words in alphabetical order.

Enter file: romeo.txt
['Arise', 'But', 'It', 'Juliet', 'Who', 'already',
'and', 'breaks', 'east', 'envious', 'fair', 'grief',
'is', 'kill', 'light', 'moon', 'pale', 'sick', 'soft',
'sun', 'the', 'through', 'what', 'window',
'with', 'yonder']
