Speed up user input with funtion arrays
When making console apps in python, I often find myself writing user input a certain way. A message is printed that looks something like this:
1. Option 1 2. Option 2 3. Option 3 4. Option 4 5. Option 5 Select an option:
And the code would look like:
option = int(input()) if (option == 1): option1() elif (option == 2): option2() elif (option == 3): option3() elif (option == 4): option4() elif (option == 5): option5()
But I recently figured out a better way to do it.
If, elif, else branches can be slow, so I found a way to do it without them.
options = [option1,opton2,option3,option4,option5] option = int(input()) options[option-1]()
I'm pretty proud of this, please give feedback!
