It's part of a hexchat plugin/addon.. like below (basically lots of 
hexchat crud interspersed. 

Anyway, i should hive it off into a separate function, and hide the 
import hexchat - still, bit of a pain.

import hexchat

def send_message(word, word_eol, userdata):
    if not(word[0] == "65293"):

    msg = hexchat.get_info('inputbox')
    if msg is None:

    x = re.match(r'(^\\help)\s+(\w+)', msg)
    if x:
        filter = x.groups()[1]
        for key, value in unicode_tex.tex_to_unicode_map.items():
            if filter in key:
                print_help(value + ' ' + key)
        hexchat.command("settext %s" % '')

    # findall returns: [(,), (,), ...] or []
    tex_matches = re.findall(r'((\\\w+){(.+?)})|(\\\w+)', msg)
    if len(tex_matches) == 0:
