CLASS• A Class is a way to bind the data and its associated functions together.• An object is an instance of a class.• Ideas about classes are: – A class can have subclasses that can inherit all or some of the characteristics of the class. – Subclasses can also define their own methods and variables that are not part of their superclass.
ACCESS SPECIFIER• private -members of a class are accessible only from within other members of the same class• protected -members are accessible from members of their same class and from members of their derived classes.• public members are accessible from anywhere where the object is visible
Access Specifier in python• There are only public or private attributes• Private-Anything that starts with two underscores is private to the class (or module).• Everything else is publicEg:-class Simple(object): def __init__(): self.__x = 0
Declaring a class in pythonclass name: statements
OBJECT• An object that contains information about a user-defined type• An object represents an entity in the real world• Distinctly identified • For example, a student, a desk, a circle• An object has an unique identity, state, and behaviors. – State-properties – Behavior-a set of methods.
Built-In Class Attributes:__dict__ : Dictionary containing the classs namespace.__doc__ : Class documentation string, or None if undefined.__name__: Class name.__module__: Module name in which the class is defined. This attribute is "__main__" in interactive mode.__bases__ : A possibly empty tuple containing the base classes, in the order of their occurrence in the base class list.
