I have a small bot for social network, which accepts message
"unicode XXXX XXXX XXXX ...", where
XXXX - HEX values which I should convert to Unicode characters. Initially command accepted only one HEX value, and it worked fine and fast. After I modified code to accept multiple values, process slowed down (1-2 seconds response vs. 4-5 seconds).
Here is my code:
def unic(msg): if type(msg) == list: msg.pop(0) # removing "unicode" word try: sym = '' # final result correct =  # correct HEX values to be converted for code in msg: try: chr(int(code, 16)) correct.append(code) except: pass if correct != : for code in correct: sym = sym + chr(int(code, 16)) elif correct == : return c_s.get('incorrect') # returning error message from common strings list if sym != '': return sym except: return c_s.get('incorrect')
What should I change here to accelerate process? Any suggestions are welcome.
